Brecon Cathedral
Brecon Cathedral was originally founded as a Benedictine Priory in 1093 and become a parish church during the dissolution of the monasteries in 1537.

The Priory Church of St John the Evangelist became Brecon Cathedral in 1923 (at the creation of the Diocese of Swansea & Brecon, when the Church in Wales became a separate Province of the Anglican Communion from the Church of England).

Most of the Cathedral and the other buildings in the Close date from the 14th century. Other than the Coke monument, highlights include a Celtic font older than the Cathedral, the Colours rescued from the Battle of Rorke’s Drift in 1879, and William Strutt’s famous painting "Peace," which hangs in the Cathedral's south transept.
