Visited the church recently and was completely blown away by its size and beauty. From the time you walk through the door you can feel the history. You walk through the main door and you immediately see a Roman Altar which I have since discovered was found locally. As you go around the church there are so many things to... More

Our ancestors were christened here in the 1700's. It was a delight to enter the church yard, and I smiled at the stone step so worn down after centuries of parishioners entering the grounds. We tried to find any old headstone with an ancestor's name on it, but most of the old stones are faded. This church is thought to... More

If you're really lucky (as I was) you'll hear one of the choirs practicing. Its a great place to shelter if its raining Don't worry, it''ll clear before too long.. and you can then be amazed by the... More

What a wonderful church. I grew up in Carmarthen but never set foot in this church, we were chapel. Definitely worth a look around. Chatted to the verger(I think he was the verger) who was so welcoming and friendly. Thank you for your welcome.

With Richard the Third recently buried the tomb of Sir Rhys ap Thomas deserves recognition as he was the man who felled Richard to give Henry Tudor the throne. Rhys met the exiled Henry at Dale and travelled through Wales to muster an army for him. Rhys was the man who killed Richard even though he had sworn allegiance to... More

Parish Church of Carmarthen and a beautiful old church. I was there to attend a concert by Mark Llewelyn Evans to help raise funds for the restoration work needed to rescue this church.

This is a well known and documented church that has a lot of history behind it and it is certainly ´worth a look. It is just 5 minutes walk from hotel.
