St. David's Cathedral

A most beautiful place of worship and tourist attraction in St. Davids

Built in the 12th century, on the site of a monastery erected by St David in c.589/601, St. David's Cathedral has had a rich history. It was damaged by an earthquake in 1247/48, partially destroyed by Parliamentary soldiers in 1648 and restored in full by Sir George Gilbert Scott between 1862 and 1877.
