St Davids walking tour
St Davids was home to several saints before its famous namesake was born here.
Not even the cult of David as it was called, nor the legends of David’s deeds would keep his beloved cathedral safe from marauding Vikings who ransacked and destroyed the building.
Rebuilt by the Normans, the current cathedral has welcomed royalty and has been recognised for its importance by the Pope in Rome.
Despite David’s legacy, the cathedral and this city’s importance, successive Bishops worked actively to undermine all!
Although St Davids began mainly as a retreat for David (pre-sainthood) and his band of miserable followers – hey, he only allowed them bread and water – it developed steadily over time to also be a community of people not directly involved with the cathedral or religious activities.
Long a haven for walkers – albeit with a much different intention today than in years past, St Davids city and its surrounding areas are stunning visually.
