This Gothic cathedral is said to be the smallest in the UK.

It was begun in the 13th century, after the original building was burnt down.

Of particular note are the simple stone pillars with medieval carvings and clerestory windows. The finely carved choir stalls date from 1482. It is the home of the William Morgan Bible, the first Welsh translation.
