St. David's - a Thin Place in Wales
      The Land of David - by Brendan O'Malley
 
Remotely situated near the western extremity of Wales, where the land stretches out to the Irish sea; and where a narrow river runs through a valley: is Dewisland, the land of David.

As into the sea all rivers go, and yet the sea is never filled, and still to their goal the rivers go, so too do pilgrims journey to St. Davidís and to the cathedral dedicated to his name.

St Davidís Cathedral equals any in the British Isles for beauty and interest, and is rivaled by only a very few. Its situation is unique: visitors, unless forewarned, would not know that it was there. They come first to the winding streets of St Davidís City, which is little more than a small town. Then, as they pass through an old gateway, there is spread before them a valley and a scene of vast medieval splendor: a cathedral built from the local purple-colored Caer Bwdy stone, harmonizing with the windswept natural surroundings. To the north lie the ruins of St Maryís College, and to the west, across the little River Alun, are the magnificent ruins of the Bishopís Palace.
