St. Govan's Chapel was built into the limestone cliffs on the southwest coast of Wales.


St. Govan's well

Until the 19th century, pilgrims traveled to St. Govan’s well, which has since dried out, to imbibe of its healing powers.

Facing the chapel's altar

A small door behind the altar leads to the place where tradition tells us St. Govan lived.

52 steps lead to the chapel.
