Brecknockshire, Wales

Brecon Cathedral, Brecknockshire, Wales

Full dedication: Cathedral Church of St. John the Evangelist
Became a Cathedral in 1923

This is probably the most satisfying Cathedral in Wales to visit - with the possible exception of St. David's.  A priory was founded here in 1093 which became the parish church after the Reformation. Much of the Cathedral as stands today is fourteenth century, including the squat, Castle-like tower.

The Cathedral stands in it's own leafy grounds on the edge of the attractive City of Brecon amidst the beautiful Brecon Beacons - reason enough to stop by this tranquil spot.
