Grade II Listed The Old Post Office (Hen Bost) designed by Clough Williams-Ellis of Portmeirion fame. It is also known for being the home of the parson of St Hywyn's church, the Welsh poet R.S.Thomas.

Before departing for Bardsey Island, 13th century pilgrims were given a free meal at Y Gegin Fawr (The Big Kitchen) in Aberdaron.
