Llandaff Cathedral

The cathedral is very beautiful and popular, and it is the reason why many tourists go to Llandaff. Its origins go back to the 6th century, when the three Celtic saints St Teilo, St Dyfrig and St Euddogwy established a community at this place. From these times, there is still a stone cross kept in the church. The oldest parts of the present cathedral date from the 12th century, with additions and alterations made in almost each following century until today. When you enter the building, the most prominent feature is the large construction in the middle of the nave – it looks like a rocket, but it is in fact an organ, with a concrete arch supporting it and a large aluminum Christ in the front!
