St Mary's Church, CardiganDedication: St Mary
Notes: St. Mary's Church, built in the 12th century by Benedictine monks whose priory was next door on the site of the present hospital. Its fine chancel, rebuilt in the 15th century, may have housed the original statue of Our Lady of Cardigan, which drew many pilgrims to the town but was destroyed in the Reformation. The church and tower were rebuilt in the 18th century. Many of the gravestones relate to Cardigan's maritime past.
