Enion Frenhin founded a priory in Penmon in the 6th century, remains of which have been found on Puffin Island which lies off the coastline here. The priory church seen in this view is of a very ancient cruciform shape and is dedicated to St Seiriol. Opposite the church stand two stone crosses, dating back to the 10th or 11th centuries and showing Viking influence.
