Solva

4.3
Solva is a village and community in Pembrokeshire, Wales, comprising principally Lower Solva and Upper Solva.LocationSolva lies on the north side of St Bride's Bay, in North Pembrokeshire in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. It lies on a deep valley at the mouth of the River Solva. In the valley is Lower Solva, consisting of a long street ending at the small harbour. Most of the modern development has been in Upper Solva, on the cliff top to the west of the harbour.HistoryThe village church honors Saint Aidan and is part of the parish of Whitchurch.The rocks at the entrance to Solva Harbour made it one of the most sheltered anchorages between Fishguard and Milford Haven. Solva became the main trading centre of St Bride's Bay in the medieval period, and was important for lime burning. Several lime kilns are preserved in the harbour area. In the 19th century, Solva had around 30 registered trading ships. The fading coastal trade has been replaced by tourism, and the harbour is now a popular boating centre.
Solva is in St Davids Peninsula. Make your own Solva vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our United Kingdom trip itinerary app .
