St Asaph is a pleasant and historic town set on the banks of the River Elwy with an attractive small Cathedral, said to be the smallest in Britain.
Long a centre of Christian worship, the town was named after a local Saint who was the first Bishop in the 6th century. The beautiful present Cathedral dates largely from the 14th century, and later Bishops included William Morgan who translated the Bible into Welsh in 1588.
While not officially designated a city, the residents of St Asaph describe it as the City of Music due to its long musical traditions, and the annual North Wales International Music Festival held in the Cathedral.
As a tourist, it's worth a visit as there are also castles to see.
