The writing’s on the wall

Llangar’s origins are lost in the mist of time. But we do know that a place of worship stood here in medieval times. One of Wales’s hidden gems, it’s located in splendid isolation overlooking the River Dee. But what’s so valuable about it? Like nearby Rug Chapel, Llangar gives little hint of what lies within.

Its plain exterior hides a jewel-like interior adorned with stunning wall paintings from the 14th and 15th centuries uncovered during restoration, depicting everything from a spear-carrying skeleton to the Seven Deadly Sins. You can also admire the old beams, minstrel’s gallery, elaborate box pews and stone font.
