Valle Crucis Abbey

Valle Crucis Abbey is one of the best preserved in North Wales. Building started in 1201 and in 1535 it was rated as the second richest Cistercian monastery after Tintern.

Many original features remain, including the west front complete with an elaborate, carved doorway, rose window and 14th century inscription 'Abbot Adams carried out this work; may he rest in peace. Amen'.
