5 reviews of Tintern Abbey

Juan Quintana

Tintern Abbey

Tintern Abbey is in South Wales, near the border with England (about 4 miles from the town of Chepstow). It was the first Welsh Cistercian construction and the second in the UK (1131 - 1536), of great importance during the Middle Ages until its destruction by the English Reformation (Henry VIII). The ruins of this abbey were very famous in the eighteenth century through the poetry of Wordsworth, who wrote "Tintern Abbey". In winter, the cold is brutal but the landscape and river are lovely.
