St David’s is the smallest City in the UK, having a population of around 2000 souls. Blest to be set in one of the most spectacular scenic settings in the country and a hub of the Pembrokshire Coast National Park, St David’s is a hugely popular tourist spot, but also has a long and eventful history. The birthplace and shrine of St David is here, and the religious centre became a place of pilgrimage since the founding of the Cathedral in 1181.
It’s very isolation on the fringes of Wales has probably been a main reason for the unspoiled nature of both the city and it’s surrounding countryside. It is indeed a place of living history, and it does not take much imagination to see the centuries fade away and to people the place with our distant ancestors.
