Pantasaph

Introduction

Pantasaph is a Roman Catholic complex of buildings, comprising the church of St David's and a Franciscan friary. On the hill behind the friary are landscaped Stations of the Cross laid out in the mid- to late-19th century. These consist of a zig-zag path up through the wooded hillside with 14 stations in alcoves. From the top of the hill is a view of the Irish Sea.
