Fascinating place

Just a place you have to visit. Another Welsh legend that makes you wonder. A great place to sit and contemplate with cliff walks all around

Little church built into the sea cliffs on the Pembrokeshire coastal path. Some steep steps to negotiate to get down to the church but really worth it - absolutely incredible piece of retardation work in what was clearly a much larger structure in the past. Unbelievable site and very unique

The Chapel has been restored and is in a very wild location. The History goes back to the sixth century.

Set amongst the cliffs of South Pembrokeshire is a treasure of a visitor attraction, Count the steps down to the Chapel and count them on the way back up and the number will be different. This place has always been a draw since childhood (when it's so much easier to walk up and down the stone steps). As an adult,... More

We took our granddaughter here on a day out while she was home from UNI. A few short steps from the car park take you to the stone steps down to the chapel. When the roof , then the rest of the building come into view , it really is like stepping way back in time. No mod cons here... More

St. Govan's Chapel was one of the highlights of our visit to Pembrokeshire. The view is absolutely breathtaking. We went in the winter months when it was totally empty - I couldn't recommend this place enough.

We were lucky to know some friends who knew of this little chapel. It was a wonderful sunny day and we climbed down the easy steps to walk inside. Years ago it was a difficult climb down, but now there are steps its something not to be missed.

Originally medieval or earlier, it has now been conserved with a new roof etc. It is situated a short walk from the car park - on a military range, which makes it quite surreal - but sits nestled in the cliffs. Fantastic spot for photography or just to sit and watch the waves rolling in endlessly, and crashing against the... More
