About the cathedral
On the most Westerly point in Wales you’ll find St David’s Cathedral. Originally a monastery founded by St David, in 1123 papal privilege was bestowed upon the cathedral and this made it a focus for pilgrims through the West and will be a popular destination in 2020 to mark the Year of Cathedrals, Year of Pilgrimage.
Since the sixth century there has been a church on this site and for 1500 years prayer and worship has been offered to God.
St David taught his followers to ‘be joyful, to keep the faith and to do the little things’.
