Valle Crucis Abbey
Valle Crucis Abbey
The spectacular remains of Valle Crucis (Valley of the Cross), this once proud Cistercian Abbey were built, probably on the site of earlier buildings, in c.1200 by a local Welshman, Madoc ap Gruffydd, Prince of Powys who lived at Dinas Bran Castle.

Dissolved in 1535, Valle Crucis Abbey quickly fell into disrepair and parts even became a farm during the 17th century.
