Description

Throughout the Dark Ages many pilgrims remained on the island, they died and were buried on Bardsey and it became known as 'the Isle of Twenty Thousand Saints'. For centuries Bardsey was important as 'the holy place of burial for all the bravest and best in the land'. Welsh bards called it 'the land of indulgences, absolution and pardon, the road to Heaven, and the gate to Paradise'.
