What an amazing place, St Illtyds church is. They call it the Westminster of Wales, I can see why. They restored one part of the church, which houses some really old Celtic stones. The church has unbelievable history, which the guides will tell you about.

A beautiful historical church with poignant ecclesiastical and historical atmosphere. The church is wonderful with ancient wall paintings, there is a created area containing ancient Celtic stones and associated history. This house of God in the Vale is well worth a visit.

This church which has ancient monastic roots is well worth a visit. The building has been enhanced by a sympathetic modern extension. There are often local helpers present who are able to enhance a visit with information on the history of the building.
