Nonni’s House

An incredible Journey
Nonni’s House is one of Akureyri’s landmarks and is the childhood home of the writer and Jesuit priest Jón Sveinsson, Nonni (1857-1944). Built in 1850 it is among the town’s oldest buildings, preserved as a typical 19th century town home and an exhibition about Nonni. Why was a 12 year old boy sent to France to become a Jesuit priest? Why did his children’s books capture the imagination around the world and translated into more than 40 languages, including Chinese, Esperanto and Icelandic?
