Penmon Priory

Penmon Priory and Lighthouse’s location is particularly scenic with stunning views out to Puffin Island (Ynys Seiriol). The grounds are rich in bird life while a pleasant stroll to the shore brings you to Penmon Point, with quality sea fishing and a close view of the lighthouse. The monastery is reputed to have been founded by St Seiriol in the 6th Century and destroyed during Viking raids in the 10th Century, with the exception of its two early Celtic gate crosses, which survived and now stand inside the church. The church was rebuilt in the 12th Century and became an Augustinian priory in the early 13th Century when it was also enlarged. The priory survived the Norman conquest but was dissolved in the late 15th Century when the site passed into private ownership, although the church has remained in use throughout. You can visit the remains of the priory, the foundations of St Seiriol’s cell and St Seiriol’s.
