We stopped at this church while on a cruise excursion. It just happened to be a special festival day, so many activities were going on downtown and there were special concerts in the church. The church itself - rebuilt in 1700 - is charming. It's been run by multiple denominations over time and they've done a good job of maintaining... More

No church should be viewed as a tourist venue as such but this was well worth visiting for its fascinating interior of various centuries although little remains of its earliest beginnings but it does contain fine artefacts and memorials.

I went here as I'd seen the Roman Fort signposted and I wasn't disappointed. It'd be lovely to see more touristy things here but just seeing it is lovely. The old schoolhouse and the church aren't open unfortunately but there is plenty of things to see if your interests lie with history at all.

St Cybi's Church is a beacon of Welsh history and spirituality with its Celtic story. Built in the 1600s the church's stained glass windows are of particular note. There is a memorial within the church, dedicated to those fighting in WWI. A visitor's book bears witness to the diversity of visitors who come into the church. The original school built... More

The present building was constructed on the site from about 1480 onwards. It is a lovely church with interesting artefacts, beautiful stained glass windows and a magnificent organ. There... More

Parking is easy on the street and you climb up the steps through the arch. There are a few information plaques which tell you about the roman fort in which the church was built. The church itself has fine stained glass windows. Only requires a short visit.
