I was expecting a bit more. CADW need to get hold of Caer Gybi and develop it as an "interpreted experience" more. I'm an archaeologist and have a strong interest in the Romans, but even I had to work quite hard to "see the wood for the trees" here as the remains are badly let down by their setting and... More

Not a lot remains of this site of the fort as it is now largely taken up by the Church in its grounds. However there are some information boards and plagues to explain the Roman connection and its position on a cliff overlooking the Harbour. This does not refer to the church as some other contributors seem to believe.

Nice to see that this site has been preserved but seems to be neglected. The church was closed although the old graves are accessible.

The church is very pretty inside but unfortunatly the churchyard is a meeting point for some of the towns undesirables. There is a panoramic view of the ferry port where you can watch the boats going to Ireland. The churchyard has many very old gravestones and the WALLS are Roman but not much of the fort remains.situated in the centre... More

Spent Easter Sunday Communion in the church at Caer Gybi and it was my first visit and on such a spiritual day. Made welcome by the local congregation and found the history of the church and Welsh hymns sung most enjoyable and informative. Look forward to worshipping there again someday. Convenient for cars too so if you have a problem... More

What a beautiful old church and the grave stones were unusual x shame about the drunks who were laying and arguing on the grounds, would definitely recommend seeing as a great little history find

If you're in this area of Anglesey then you must see - something constructed 2 millenia ago and still partially standing

Nice historical visit! The head stones in the courtyard of the fort were something unusual and impressive!

We stumbled across this little gem whilst passing time in the town waiting for our ferry. My husband and I had been talking about the Romans and whether they had reached Anglesey on our journey there so we were really surprised to discover this fort in the centre of the town.
