Following the announcement of a short ‘firebreak’ lockdown by the Welsh Government as of 6pm on Friday 23 October, all Cadw staffed and unstaffed sites will be closed until further notice.
Until we can welcome you back in person, you can visit us virtually through our Open Doors Online 3D tours. All you’ll need is a mobile phone or a desk-top computer — of if you have a VR head-set you can be fully-immersed inside your selected adventure.
Diolch and we hope to see you again soon.
Hidden holy well with possible pagan origins
Nestled amid trees in a secluded spot at the base of the Llŷn Peninsula, this ancient holy site possesses an unmistakeable air of magic. Dedicated to Cybi, a 6th-century saint reputed to have lived in the area (the church in nearby Llangybi also bears his name), the well’s waters have long been believed to hold healing properties.
Today you can see two well chambers alongside a more recent caretaker’s cottage dating from the 18th or 19th century. Despite its association with St Cybi, it’s possible that the well’s sacred status may be pre-Christian in origin.
