Saksun is a picturesque village in the bottom of what was once an inlet surrounded by high mountains. The inlet formed a deep and good natural harbour. However a storm blocked the inlet with sand. So now there is a lake below the village where there was an inlet in the old day. Duvugardur is a farm from before 17th century. It is still in use as a farm. Besides that part of it is now a museum where visitors can see how Faeroese people lived in those days. The church in Saksun was built in 1858.
