A cruciform shaped church with huge square tower supported by pointed arches. It has been a place of worship since Norman times. The church was restored in the 15th C and again in the 1873. It contains a Celtic cross slab, painted nave ceiling, brass chandelier and many memorials. A 15th C Italian brocade cope and church silver, not on display, are owned by the church.
There was probably a castle here in the early 12th C though the upstanding remains can be traced back no further than the late 13th C. In the 18th and 19th C the outer ward was laid with formal gardens.
St Anthony's well is situated on the road that once led to Laugharne ferry. Pilgrims on route to and from St Davids would stop off at the well to refresh themselves.

Prehistoric people have left their mark in the form of Stone age burial chambers, Bronze age standing stones, burnt mounds and fortifications, Iron age hill forts and hut circles.
The castle was strategically placed to guard the Tywi estuary. It was built within the still visible ramparts of a late Bronze age hill fort. Originally a wooden 11th C castle was built which was then replaced in stone by the Norman invaders in the 12th C. It was considerably extended in the 13th C. After a period when it was used as a comfortable residence it was eventually abandoned in the 16th C and left to ruin.
The present nave dates from the 13th C, the tower and transepts were added in the 15th C and the Lloyd Chapel in the 16th C. The interior has been renovated several times during the 19th C and a current programme of restoration is on going. The church has fine 19th and 20th C stained glass windows, including a beautiful east window by John Petts.
The castle was built in reaction to Welsh uprisings then further fortified with a new gatehouse in the 1420's following the uprisings of Owain Glyndwr.
Earliest records mention the castle in 1094 and by 1105 Carmarthen town was mentioned by name so the castle was certainly on its present site by then. The castle evidently was very important early on in its history. It underwent a series of attacks and rebuilding episodes. Finally in 1215 Llewellyn the Great destroyed it and in 1223 the present castle was built by William Marshal Earl of Pembroke. Satnav users please note this postcode will get you to the Tourist Information Centre, Lammas Street, Carmarthen.
Parts of the church date from the 13th C. Many of the 17th-19th C memorials in the church are of famous people. The church was built of local red sandstone and grey shale. It is large with a tower, nave, chancel, south aisle and Bishops court.
Hwyel Dda ruled over most of the country and claimed to be the King of Wales during the late 9th C. His legal system was known for its wisdom and justice and was still in force until the act of union in 1536. A memorial garden was chosen as a quiet contemplative environment in which to explore his laws and early medieval society.
Exhibits include Romans, furniture, paintings and much more. The museum building once was the palace of the Bishop of St David's 1542-1974. It was here that the New Testament was first translated into Welsh

The 12th C tower remains largely unaltered. The main body of the church is the result of an extensive 19th C rebuilding programme. The belfry holds two bells cast in 1684 during the reign of Charles II. One of the bells is inscribed 'Vivat Rex', long live the king. The south transept was built as a result of the 19th C population explosion due to Brunel's Great Western Railway arriving at Neyland. The stained glass window is dedicated to those fallen during the 1914-1918 war. The church is open daily during day light hours.
Over the centuries the castle has had a colourful existence. It has withstood all assaults by the Welsh and escaped unscathed in 1215 when Llewelyn the Great devastated west Wales. Twice the town was burned up to the castle gates but the castle escaped.
