Enlli - Bardsey Island
Bardsey -Ynys Enlli - has been a place of important christianity and pilgrimage since the 5th century, with a monastery being built here in the 6th century by St Cadfan . Indeed - three trips to Bardsey were considered equal to a pilgrimage to Rome. There are reputedly 20,000 saints buried on the island.
Bardsey welcomes many hundreds of day visitors during the summer months with day trips being operated from Porth Meudwy - a fishing cove near Aberdaron, or from the main town of Pwllheli . Visitors are able to explore the island for a few hours- ( however no pets are allowed )
