The Papar, monks from the gaëlic church, were one of the first groups to live on icelandic grounds, before the danish colonization, so before the IXe century. They were travelling monks, searching for ideal places to spend silent retreats. They dug caves, still visible today, in which traces and engravings can still be found. Crosses, drawn like they could, consciously or not, create an avatar of a church or a monastery, as if they never left, still in the same place.
Turas, in Old Irish language means migration, expedition, pilgrimage.
