St. David's Bishops Palace - Sarah Woodbury

St. David’s Bishops Palace

The Bishop’s palace at St. David’s was built in the 13th century. Ornate and elaborate, it showcased the bishop’s power and wealth. Before the Norman conquest of Wales, the Welsh church tried to get the bishopric promoted to an archbishopric, which would free it from the jurisdiction of Canterbury, but those efforts were not successful. I visited in May 2014.
