Today is the national day to celebrate Dewi Sant.

The Bishop’s Palace (now under the guardianship of Cadw) is adjacent to the cathedral in St Davids, Pembrokeshire. The palace was enhanced by Bishop Henry de Gower in the 14th century. In the foreground is the entrance to the Bishop’s hall.

The arcading along the upper part of the hall is echoed in Swansea castle.
