Nant Gwrtheyrn - Porth y Nant : Nant Gwrtheyrn (‘Vortigern’s Creek’) is a Heritage Centre located on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula, Gwynedd, Wales near the village of Llithfaen. Originally known as Porth y Nant it was established as a quarrying settlement until abandoned some years after the closure of the quarry which had been operated by ARC until the mid 1940s. During the 1960s and 70s its buildings were occupied by a hippie comune which caused much damage to the site. The village is in a very isolated location at the foot of Yr Eifl and until recently road access was difficult. Today the village has been developed as a Welsh Language and Heritage Centre utilising the former quarry workers’ houses which are used for holiday accommodation and for those attending Welsh language courses.

Strata Florida Abbey : Strata Florida Abbey (Welsh: Abaty Ystrad Fflur) is a former Cistercian abbey founded in 1164 near Ponrhydfendigaid, in the county of Ceredigion, Wales. The name Strata Florida is a corruption of the Welsh Ystrad Fflur, and has a double meaning; "Valley of (the river of) Flowers". Ystrad corrupts into "Strata", while Fflur ("Flowers") is also the name of the nearby river. After the region around St. David's was firmly occupied by the Norman Marcher lordship of Pembroke by the early 12th century, with St. David's firmly under Norman influence thereafter, the princely Dinefwr family of Deheubarth transferred their patronage to Strata Florida, interring many of their family members there. The Abbey is now in the care of CADW – Welsh National Heritage
