Historic Churches & Religious Sites in Wales - (A)

Browse this gazetteer of historic churches alphabetically (this section), or find information on medieval Cathedrals in Wales. You can also find information on historic sites in each region of Wales. As you can tell, most of the churches in this gazetteer start with 'L'! Of these the vast majority begin with the Welsh prefix 'Llan', a term which loosely translates as 'church' and was used to describe early Christian enclosures.
