More about this scene

One of Abersoch's many hostelries, this establishment is now St Tudwal's Inn. St Tudwal (Tugdual) was a Breton, who escaped the fall of Rome in the 6th century and landed on the small islands a little offshore. A ruined chapel is said to be the remains of an oratory he founded. Abersoch was not just a centre for visitors - there were lead mines nearby.
