Llanrwst is such an interesting place, with so much to see and do that this page is dedicated to just the Church of St Grwst, and the Almshouses - and more than worthy they are too!

On a sunny day, this Norman Church resting on the banks of the River Conwy is truly a magnificent sight to behold. Interesting to note that in the times of Edward I (13th century), who declared that no Welshman could trade within 10 miles of Conwy Castle, Llanrwst prospered because it was about 13 miles from the Castle, and as such was in the right place to benefit from that order.

The Wynn family of Gwydir Castle were such an important family, and their influence is still very evident today. Within the Gwydir Chapel wing of the Church (built by the Wynn family), also lies the sarcophagus of Prince Llewelyn - the Prince of Wales - which was probably once held at the Maenan Abbey in the Conwy Valley, and went astray during the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 16th century.

The Almshouses were built by the Wynn Family.
