This 8 mile pilgrim-journey is organised jointly between Journeying and St Davids Cathedral's Ty'r Pererin Education & Pilgrimage Centre. The walk begins in the city of St Davids, in reality a small, attractive village. It was here that St David founded a monastery in the sixth century on a promontory pushing out to sea at the furthest point of south west Wales. This foundation became a major centre of Celtic Christianity and an important place of pilgrimage. Today the lovely Cathedral of St David lies in a little valley in what is perhaps the most rural ecclesiastical setting in Britain.
This is a 'thin place' where the boundary between heaven and earth is narrow...From St Davids we walk to the coast at St Non's where St David was born - on a cliff top during a raging storm! Thereafter its magnificent sea views all the way to St Justinian. There is a return bus to St Davids.
