St Davids Cathedral is built from a local stone with a beautiful pink and grey colouring. It occupies the valley floor below the village. As you approach from The Square, you can't see the Cathedral until you get fairly close. When you pass through The Gatehouse, it's magnificently revealed in front of you.
There was so much to take in and thousands of little details in the cathedral like the tomb of Edmund Tudor who was father of the King Henry VII is there. He was a Lancastrian and captured by Yorkists in mid-1456 who imprisoned him at Carmarthen Castle in South Wales, where he died of the plague later that year. His remains were moved to the removed to the choir of St David's Cathedral.
Edmund's only child, the future Henry VII, was born at Pembroke Castle which was close by.

If you get a chance to visit West Wales I highly recommend a visit to St David's. I hear the surf if pretty good around those parts too.
