Llanthony Priory (25mins) was one of the earliest houses of Augustinian canons to be founded in Britain, and is one of only a handful in Wales. It is chiefly famous today for its wild and beautiful setting, far up the Vale of Ewyas in the Black Mountains.   The priory’s church, built between 1180 and 1230, was one of the great medieval buildings of Wales.
Entrance to the remains of the priory is free, and the pub – which is charming in itself – serves excellent refreshments.
