Giantess cave

The giantess is everyone’s friend and ready to use his size and energy to help in the problems of the little ones, his friends.

Her home is small and therefore she welcomes snoods that children no longer use but she uses them to decorate their homes.

Her cave can be found by the marina in Gróf, where she sits for a long time by the kitchen window in her rocking chair and looks out over Keflavík and Faxaflói.

As is the custom of a troll, the skunk sleeps terribly much and her snorts can be heard for long distances, especially if she releases the wind but then there will be a lot of decorations and panic.

This is how giant crates can be. But there is nothing to fear, she is the sweetest troll there is.

Skessan is the intellectual work of Herdís Egilsdóttir, who in 1959 published the first book about Siggur and the skess in the mountain. The stories have received the favor of children and on the occasion of the opening of the cave on Ljósanótt 2008, the 16th book was published called Sigga og skessan á Suðurnesjar.
