Churches & Religious Buildings in Wales.

Lamphey Bishops Palace
The medieval bishops of St Davids were worldly men who enjoyed the privileges of wealth, power and status. At Lamphey, near Pembroke, they built for themselves a magnificent retreat away from the worries of Church and State.
Llandaff Cathedral
The ancient Celtic Cross, which stands near the Chapter House doorway, testifies to the tradition of 1400 years of Christian worship. The earliest parts of the present Cathedral however, date from the twelfth century
Rug Chapel and Llangar Church
These delightful religious sites are located close together in beautiful countryside just west of Corwen. Rug is a rare example of a little-altered private 17th century chapel. Llangar Church is even older than Rug.
St Davids Bishops Palace
St Davids Bishop's Palace even in ruin, still conveys the affluence and power of the medieval church. The bishops of St Davids in the middle ages enjoyed all the trapping of wealth and influence.
Strata Florida Abbey
The austere Cistercian monks were renowned for seeking out wild and lonely places in which to practice their religion. None of their Welsh abbeys preserve that spirit of remoteness more strongly than serene Strata Florida.
Tintern Abbey
It's easy to understand why Tintern Abbey was one of the first places in Wales to attract Visitors. Travellers have been flocking to this riverbank in the wooded Wye Valley for hundreds of years to admire Tintern's grace and sublime beauty.
Valle Crucis Abbey
The evocative ruins of Valle Crucis lie in green fields beneath Llangollen's steep-sided mountains. In medieval times, this was a remote spot (ideal for the austere Cistercian monks, who deliberately sought out wild and lonely places).
