Llanbister Methodist Church and the Llanbister War Memorial are also great places to check out.
You'll feel like a knight in shining armour from a medieval tale when you visit Oystermouth Castle or Hay Castle. Oxwich Castle and Powis Castle are two more fascinating historic monuments.
Whether you're a spiritual person or not, you're sure to have a pleasant time at St. Joseph's Cathedral and Church of St Andrew. If you'd be interested to look at more religious sites, keep an eye out for tours at St. Mary's and Brecon Cathedral.
