St David’s

St David’s with it’s Cathedral and ruined Bishop’s Palace is, by some measures, the smallest city in the United Kingdom….although in reality it’s no bigger than a large village/small town.

Named after St David, the patron Saint of Wales (who founded a monastic order on the site in the 6th century AD) the monastry (later cathedral) and settlement that grew up around it has been attracting pilgrims for over 1500 years….drawn by the Cathedral’s many relics including the remains of St David himself.
