The 11th-century cathedral at Kilfenora was once an important place of pilgrimage. St Fachan (or Fachtna) founded the monastery here in the 6th century, and it later became the seat of Kilfenora diocese, the smallest in the country. Loop around the more recent protestant church and you can enter the oldest part of the ruins, which have a stoic charm. The chancel has two primitive carved figures on top of two tombs.
