Reputed birthplace of Wales’s patron saint in uplifting location

Though all that remains of St Non’s Chapel is a few crumbling walls of uncertain date, it is nevertheless a significant holy and cultural site. Its location, on the edge of Wales along one of the most stunning stretches of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, adds to the chapel’s spiritual charge. Said to be the 6th-century birthplace of the patron saint of Wales, St David, it is named after his mother, and remains a place of pilgrimage to this day.

The small, rectangular chapel may be plain and simple, but its setting overlooking rocky St Non’s Bay is breathtaking. On the path leading up to the chapel you’ll pass a holy well believed to possess curative powers, another popular stop for visiting pilgrims.
