The Cathedral and its attendant buildings, formerly a Benedictine Priory under the control of Battle Abbey in Sussex, are amongst the most important architecturally in Wales.

Brecon Cathedral has been the site of Christian worship for more than a thousand years, dating from the days of the Norman conquest.

In 1093 a Benedictine Priory linked to Battle Abbey was established here and continued in existence until the dissolution of the monastries in 1537.

The building then served the community as a Parish Church, and in 1923 became the Cathedral Church of the newly founded Diocese of Swansea & Brecon.

Carreg Cennen Castle

Drop dead gorgeous and also very clever. A killer combination. Attackers scaling the steep cliffs might as well have signed their own death warrants. The chances of returning alive were slim.
