The Cistercian Way is more than a long-distance path: it is a walk into the heart of Wales. Explore the great abbeys of the Cistercian order, the little churches of the Welsh hills, the amazing geology of the Pembrokeshire coast, Stone Age burial mounds, medieval castles and sheep-farms, picturesque landscaped gardens and the industrial heritage of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Walk along Roman roads, medieval pilgrimage routes and nineteenth-century canal towpaths. Let the route take you to friendly villages, remote mountains and spectacular coastlines. Learn about Wales - land of song and legends, mines and chapels, rugby and holy wells.
You can select segments of the route from the menu on the left. Click on the maps or the images at the top of the pages to view larger versions. Scroll down for links to places and people of interest.
