Details

From St Fagans to Llandudno, St Davids to Pennant Melangell, the names of saints are bound up with the very fabric of the country. Stories of the saints were once plentiful in medieval Wales, although many are forgotten today. This exhibition demonstrates the survival of medieval traditions about the holy men and women who represent an important part of the country’s cultural inheritance.

*** Free admission. ***
