Artist's Description

Looking up at the glorious ceiling inside the tower of St Davids Cathedral

St Davids (Welsh: Tyddewi), is a city and community in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in the United Kingdom. Lying on the River Alun on St David’s Peninsula, it is Britain’s smallest city in terms of both size and population, the final resting place of Saint David, the country’s patron saint, and the de facto ecclesiastical capital of Wales.

A monastic community was founded by Saint David, Abbot of Menevia, who died in in the year 589.
The present Cathedral was begun in 1181, and completed not long after. Problems beset the new building and the community in its infancy; the collapse of the new tower in 1220, and earthquake damage in 1247/48.
The Welsh architect John Nash was commissioned to restore the West Front in 1793 to repair the damage done two hundred years previously.
Next to the cathedral, the 13th century Bishops Palace is now a picturesque ruin.
