Tintern Parva lies on the A466 in the Wye Valley in Monmouthshire, Wales. The village was amalgamated with Chapel Hill in 1902 forming the settlement of Tintern.
Nearby towns include Catbrook, Brockweir, Chapel Hill, and Coldharbour.
Lying on the banks of the River Wye and being close to two National Trails the village is popular with tourists. However Tintern Parva is most renowned for its association with the ruins of Tintern Abbey.
Tintern Abbey was originally founded by Cistercian monks in 1131 AD, in the reign of Henry I. Between 1270 and 1301 the Abbey was rebuilt but sadly was ruined following the reformation. The ruins of Tintern Abbey are a remarkable structure and are now in the care of Cadw, Welsh Historic Monuments.
