St David's Cathedral.

"The geographical position of St David's is itself a parable : placed as nigh as possible to the setting sun, it would appear to symbolize the triumph of His kingdom whose " dominion shall be from one sea to the other, and from the flood unto the world's end." The raison d'etre of so magnificent an assemblage of buildings in this remote spot is not hard to account for. All this country of Dewisland was consecrated, in the imagination and religion of its ancient inhabitants, as the scene of the birth and life of St David. His shrine was the Walsingham or Canterbury of the Cymry." Extract from "The Cathedrals of England and Wales" (Open Library)
