St Govans is located not far away from the village of Bosherston in Pembrokeshire.  You will find the chapel which was built between the sixth and thirteenth century.  The name of the area relates to St Govan, who is believed to be a hermit from Ireland who came here to search for an Abbot who trained him.  When pirates invaded, he hid in a fissure until the pirates left.  From that day, he stayed in the area to warn locals of any future pirate invasions.  It is also believed that St Govan is also buried beneath the chapel.
