Eglwys y Grog (Holy Cross Church)
Eglwys y Grog (Holy Cross Church), claims to be the oldest church in the County of Ceredigion. By tradition, a church has stood on this spot since sometime in the fifth to seventh century.
At one time there may have been a stone cross on the summit of Foel y Mwnt the headland behind the church, hence the dedication to the Holy Cross.
It would have acted as a daymark to pilgrims landing on the sandy shores beneath, as Mwnt was a stopping place where vigils were kept over the bodies of saints en route to Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli) on the far side of Cardigan Bay, their traditional burial ground.
The age of the present building is uncertain; it probably dates from the thirteenth or fourteenth century. Of particular note are the three lengths of carved timber displayed on the north wall. These are all that remains of the Rood Screen that used to divide the chancel from the nave.
