In 2013 the Welsh Government announced its Faith Tourism Action Plan for Wales and in 2018 we said we’d put the initiative into action across South Wales in a treasure hunt project.
In June last year we delivered the Landscapes of Faith festival – 30 days on the road celebrating with communities the wonderful and diverse faith heritage throughout South Wales.
The festival was delivered safely under Covid-19 Government national lockdown conditions. We’re looking forward to returning to all the conversations and activities of the festival and celebrating again with you all. The new website here with interactive map, carrying details and the offer of wonderful tourist attractions in South Wales will launch in 2023. More news soon.
To mark the launch of the new website and interactive map we’ll also be launching at Llantwit Major – the site of Britain’s oldest centre of learning -a Landscapes of Faith Exhibition of specially commissioned photographs of the faith landscape in South Wales by the award winning international photographer Kiran Ridley.
