The name clearly delineates the point of departure: the Faroese word ‘skansi’ means fortress; it is a stronghold, a safe haven, and an observation point from which you ‘scan the sea’, traditionally from a lighthouse, offering navigational help to vessels and a safe haven to turn to. But there is also a distinctly naval denotation: The ‘skansi’ of a ship is its aft deck or quarterdeck, traditionally featuring the navigational highpoint and steering.
The only surviving skansi, or fortress, in the Faroe Islands is situated in Tórshavn, the center of the islands. Skansi’s headquarters, fittingly located at Skansavegur 7, overlooks the unique features of this ‘skansi’.
