Photography at Rug Chapel

Rug Chapel is a true Welsh gem, which has hardly changed since it was built nearly 400 years ago. It’s elaborate interior can be explored over two levels, and there’s a host of great photo opportunities, from the rich colours of the stained glass windows, to the sombre skeleton painted on a wall.
