St David's (Tyddewi) is to be found on the St David's peninsula in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Pembrokeshire south west Wales. The town, or to be correct the City, is as attractive to visitors today as it ever was to medieval pilgrims visiting the shrine of St David. The City is named after David the patron saint of Wales who according to tradition was born on the cliff tops nearby. He later founded a monastery where today the magnificent Cathedral stands. St David's Cathedral has been a site of pilgrimage and worship for many hundreds of years and must be visited if only for the stunning architecture of the Nave and its unique sixteenth century Irish oak ceiling. Adjacent to the cathedral stand the magnificent ruins of the medieval Bishops Palace.
The town itself though small has more facilities than might be expected, and offers both a Marine Life Centre and the National Trust's St David's Visitor Centre with information on National Trust properties throughout the county. The village square, Cross Square is a pleasant meeting place for both locals and tourists. The central gardens offer a chance to sit and watch the world go by. Browse one of the many galleries or enjoy refreshments in the tea gardens. ....
