Reykholt er einn sögufrægasti staður landsins, þjóðmenningarstaður. Sagnaritarinn, fræðimaðurinn og höfðinginn Snorri Sturluson settist að í Reykholti árið 1206 og óf þaðan þéttriðið net valda og áhrifa um allt land — og reyndar alla leið til Noregs. Á miðöldum var kirkjumiðstöð í kaþólskri tíð og á dögum Snorra miðstöð lærdóms og valda.
