Also known as Eglwys Gadeiriol Llandaf
- Llandaff is unique in being the only cathedral in the United Kingdom to have north-west and south-west towers with a spire.
- Work was started on the church by the Norman's in the early 12th century and continued for another 170 years until 1290 when it was then "completed" until Victorian times.
- Once the Bishop of Llandaff started to use the cathedral in the 19th century work restarted and the church was not only full restored but also had a new spire added and a tower extended by local architect John Prichard giving it a unique and unusual look.
- In January 1941 the cathedral was gravely damaged when a landmine was dropped near it blowing the roof off the nave, south aisle and chpater house. The top of the spire also had to be partially reconstructed.
