St Davids

St Davids or St David’s is a city and community (full name St David’s and the Cathedral Close) in Pembrokeshire, Wales, in the United Kingdom. Lying on the River Alun on St Davids Peninsula, it is Britain’s smallest city in terms of both size and population, the final resting place of Saint David, Wales’s patron saint, and the de facto ecclesiastical capital of Wales. St Davids was given city status in the 16th century due to the presence of St David’s Cathedral but lost this in 1888. City status was restored in 1994 at the request of Queen Elizabeth II.
