Aðalstræti is the most historic street in Reykjavik. The oldest archaeological records of settlements were found here; also, with the increasing number of houses, it became the first street of the city. The oldest house is in Aðalstræti 10 and dates from 1765. It can be seen here in both the before and after picture (the low brown house).
For the last 100 years, the road has changed dramatically, only a few of the houses are still standing. Instead of the area framed by a wall is now a place that was until 1796 Reykjavik's first church and a cemetery.
