Barnafoss (Children's Falls), Iceland

The Saga of Children's Falls. The story tells of two children in the Hraunsás household who were supposed to stay home while the parents went to church for Christmas Mass. When the parents returned from mass, they discovered that the children had disappeared. They then followed the children’s tracks to this waterfall at the stone natural bridge where the tracks disappeared. The mother concluded that the children must have fallen into the river and drowned. Then, the mother put a spell on the bridge saying that nobody would ever cross it without drowning. A little while later, the bridge was destroyed by an earthquake.
