Bangor, Gwynedd, Wales
Bangor was founded in 525, only the second cathedral in Britain. Nothing remains of that early structure. And the 12th century Norman church here was destroyed by Edward I during his conquest of Wales. Bishop Anian began rebuilding in 1291, but again little remains of his work, for it was burned again during Owain Glyndwr's rebellion in the early 15th century. The nave and tower are early Tudor, and there are tombs of 13th century Welsh princes in the south transept.
