The Cathedral

The main attraction for visitors to St Davids is the Cathedral that is built from local pink and grey stone. The Cathedral is located at the lower end of the village, below The Square.  The Gatehouse can be clearly seen with steps leading down to the main buildings.

Looking down towards the Cathedral you will notice the ruins of The Bishop's Palace and this is well worth a visit. This was once a grand fortified residence.  The palace was one of several grand residences in Pembrokeshire including Lamphey Bishop's Palace and Llawhaden Castle.
