West Wales has a rich and distinctive history and culture which owes much to the Welsh language and its Celtic origins.
The Welsh language is very much alive in Ceredigion and you won’t have to go far to hear it being spoken.
If you’re interested in learning more about some of our local Welsh history and cultural heritage there are plenty of interesting museums, monuments and attractions to visit.
