for their sins, in aid of a cure, or in the hope of dying on Bardsey, a Holy

3 pilgrimages to Bardsey equalled one to Rome.
A Celtic cross
amidst the Abbey ruins commemorates 20,000 Saints buried on the Island.
Our walk follows in the footsteps of these early Saints as they travelled
along the churches and holy wells of Llŷn starting from the ancient assembly
point, St Beuno’s Chapel at Clynnog Fawr.
