There’s no doubt about, Wales is a place for romance. Where else can you find a place that has its own patron saint for lovers? The Welsh equivalent of St. Valentine, St. Dwynwen, celebrates her own day every 25th of January.
While her story may not have ended with a happily-ever-after, what with Dwynwen spending the rest of her days as a nun, that does not diminish the feelings of romance in the city.
