St Germans Priory Church
Adjacent to Port Eliot is the finest, oldest, historic church in Cornwall. Once a cathedral and part of the Pilgrim’s Way, it is an architecturally fascinating building with a well preserved Norman doorway and Burne Jones’ windows as part of its fine features. Still a parish church, it is now undergoing some renewal and innovation as a resource for the community for education and events. For more information please visit www.stgermanspriory.info.
