Strata Florida is a hamlet in Ceredigion, Wales. The settlement is situated to the south east of Pontrhydfendigaid and to the south west of Waun Claerddu. Strata Florida is famed for the Cistercian Abbey which was founded in 1164 and is the burial place of many Princes of Ceredigion and Deheubarth (formerly in South West Wales), as well as the Welsh bard Dafydd ap Gwilym.
The abbey is now in the hands of Cadw, the Welsh Heritage authority, and the ruins are a popular tourist attraction.
The River Teifi passes through the village from east to west and forms part of the boundary between Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire counties. The river has it's source in Llyn Teifi and stretches for 75 miles, eventually running into the sea beneath the town of Cardigan.
The Teifi Pools walk intertwines around Strata Florida and stretches up to the barren Plynlimon Hills above the village of Pontrhyddfendigaid. The pools are revered for their sea trout and this system of old reservoirs, hidden in the Plynlimon Hills, is a fantastic example of the majestic and attractive landscapes Wales has to offer.
