St John’s Church


St John the Baptist Church is a parish church in Cardiff, Wales and the oldest church in the city centre. Originally it was built as a chapel of ease for the larger St Mary's Church, which was destroyed in the 17th century. The bell tower has a crown of openwork battlements reminiscent of churches in the West Country of England, and is dated c. 1490, when the similar Jasper Tower of Llandaff Cathedral was also built.

Llandaff Cathedral (Welsh: Eglwys Gadeiriol Llandaf) is the seat of the Bishop of Llandaff, head of the Church in Wales Diocese of Llandaff. It is situated in the district of Llandaff in the city of Cardiff, the capital of Wales. The current building was constructed in the 12th century over the site of an earlier church. It is dedicated to Saint Peter and Saint Paul, and also to three Welsh saints: Dubricius (Welsh: Dyfrig), Teilo and Oudoceus (Welsh: Euddogwy). It is one of two cathedrals in Cardiff, the other being the Catholic Cardiff Cathedral in the city centre.
