Cathedral

Recommended
This is the largest church in Wales. It was built in an isolated hollow and suddenly appears in spectacular fashion to anyone crossing the portal to reach the cathedral wall and the Episcopal palace. Pietro de Leia, a Florentine monk and third Norman bishop, began work in 1180. He is responsible for most of the cathedral, which reaches as far as the wall behind the main altar. The tower fell in 1220, ruining the transept and the choir.
