"Visit the Cathedral" Llandaff Things to Do Tip by Myfanwe
Llandaff Things to Do: 20 reviews and 51 photos
Llandaff Cathedral stands on one of the oldest Christian sites in Britain. In the sixth century St Dyfrig founded a community close to the ford where the Roman road crossed the river Taff. He was succeeded by St Teilo and then Teilo's nephew, St Euddogwy. These three Celtic Saints remain patron saints of the present Cathedral and are represented by the three mitres in the Cathedral badge. Nothing remains of the original church but a Celtic Cross that stood nearby can still be seen near the door of the Chapter house. After several additions and renovations over the centuries, the Cathedral is a great building with some fantastic sculptures and arcitectural features. The Cathedral wasn't open during our visit but we really enjoyed looking at the exterior and found some great celtic crosses in the graveyard.
