Ysbyty Cynfyn

Church in Around Aberystwyth

Ysbyty Cynfyn (es-bet-ty kun-vin) is a fascinating example of the grafting of the Christian onto the pagan, so widely evident in Wales. Here, the remains of a stone circle are clearly visible within Georgian churchyard walls. Earlier, the site was a hospice (ysbyty), run by the Knights Hospitaller for travellers making their way to Strata Florida abbey.
