Tjodhilde’s Church

According to the saga, Erik the Red, who founded Greenland and named it so, settled down here in Qassiarsuk in the late 10th century. And Tjodhilde, Erik’s wife, made the first Christian church built in Greenland in early 11th century. The church, above, was reconstructed in 2000.
