St. David's

St David's Cathedral

St David's Cathedral.

Named after the Patron Saint of Wales, this cathedral city is the smallest city in Britain. The cathedral is the largest church in Wales and reputedly houses the bones of the Patron Saint.

For many centuries this tiny religious centre was one of the most important sacred places in Britain. It was said that two pilgrimages to St Davids was the equal of one pilgrimage to Rome. William the Conqueror is reputed to have worshipped at St.Davids.

St.David is believed to have died on March 1st and this is why the date was chosen as the National day for Wales.

St.David’s is a busy tourist centre. It has a good selection of shops, restaurants and cafes and many places to stay.

The coast and beaches in the area are in themselves a major tourist draw and Whitesands bay is now a major surfing beach.
