parts of the building are 1000 years old and steeped in some very interesting history. the building started life as a benedictine monastery which would have been left to ruin if edward II hadn't been buried here.
the great east window is as big as a tennis court and was made in about 1350. it would have been grander than anything ever seen in england at the time.
also buried here is robert, duke of normandy who was the eldest son of william the conqueror. he died in 1134 at cardiff castle, a prisoner of his brother king henry I.
