With over 4,500 churches and chapels, Wales has some of the most beautiful and historic religious buildings in the world. Including ancient churches, medieval cathedrals, and hilltop chapels – Wales has got the lot!
To celebrate and raise awareness of Wales’ religious heritage, we have launched ‘Sacred Wales’ – ‘Cymru Sanctaidd’ giving people a chance to choose Wales’ favourite church or chapel. From a list nominated by churches and chapels and religious and heritage organisations, you can choose from fifty from all over Wales.
They include St David’s Cathedral; Capel Als, the first Nonconformist place of worship in Llanelli; and St Winefride, Holywell, a shrine marking the spot where where Caradog cut off St Winefride’s head in the 7th century and one of the oldest continual pilgrimage sites in Britain.
The project was launched in Cardiff by Huw Edwards and you can go online to vote now.
