The Neolithic standing stones and Bronze Age hut circles that are scattered around Llanbedr are a reminder of the ancient pedigree of the settlement. We can guess that it was the fertile ground and proximity of woodland in the Arto Valley that drew the earliest villagers to settle here, but latter visitors have been astounded by the natural beauty of spots like Cwm Bychan and Shell Island.
The Mabinogion features Llanbedr regularly in tales regarding the bard Taliesin.
Amongst the sand dunes can be found the parish church of Saint Tanwg. The old church probably dates from the 13th Century, but two inscribed stones are evidence of Christianity in Llandanwg from the early 6th Century.
Capel Salem, the small village chapel, was made famous by the painter Sydney Vosper who painted the congregation in traditional welsh dress in 1866.
