St David's is the smallest city in Wales -- a charming little town, really, that is conferred the status of a city by virtue of its cathedral.
Sheltered in a grassy hollow to protect it from the sea, St David's Cathedral is a building of stunning beauty. Over the centuries it has grown in importance and, in the 12th century, it was declared that two pilgrimages to St David's were equal to one to Rome, and that three were equal to a pilgrimage to Jerusalem itself. The ruins of the Bishop's Palace are also to be found in this hollow. They bear testament to the wealth and influence that the bishops of St David's enjoyed in the Middle Ages.
You will have some free time to enjoy the town of St David's with its charming shops, craft stores and cafés.
Re-boarding the coach and continuing with your scenic drive, you'll follow the road along the coast with spectacular views. Turning inland again, you cross the dramatic Prescelly Mountains -- home of the great blue stones that were used to build Stonehenge.
Refreshments are not included, but can be purchased at additional cost at St David's.
