Welcome to Postcards from Pembrokeshire (198/365)
Today’s Postcard: Capel Non, Dydd Gwyl Dewi
St. Non’s Chapel near St. David’s is part of the spiritual west. Non was David’s mother and the original Capel Non is one of the oldest architectural relics in Wales, forming a significant stop-off for pilgrims en route to St. David’s cathedral. It was said that two visits to St David’s were akin to one to Rome, and three would buy you air miles to Jerusalem.
