CHAPELLE DE LA PRINCESSE
The former hospice, of which this chapel is a part, was built in several phases. During the construction of the third part, this special chapel was erected around 1865. The chapel's huge domed vault and late neoclassical interior make it a particularly interesting and unique example of architecture in the region. Even in later expansions of the hospital complex, it was always decided to keep the chapel and its entrance, precisely because of its special architectural character.
With regard to the chapel's interior, the unique 19th century neo-Gothic main altar deserves special mention. The chapel was decorated with various polychrome statues with their wall plinths, fourteen paintings of the Stations of the Cross and a painting of the patron saint of the chapel and the hospice. All these decorations have since disappeared. The two glass paintings from 1900 in the choir and above one of the sacristy doors are still intact. The large gallery, protected by a wooden balustrade, overlooks part of the sanctuary and is accessible from the upper floor. The entrance portal and the monumental stairwell of the old hospice are a very fine example of the golden age of iron in the second half of the 19th century.
The chapel was open to the public until the departure, in 1968, of the Daughters of the Cross. Since then, it has been reserved for residents of the hospital complex, which has since been converted into a nursing home. During its heyday, the chapel regularly enjoyed the visit of a number of members of the royal family, who had a country house in the area.

Site of St. Trillo's Celtic Monk's Cell, Rhos-on-Sea, North Wales.
St. Trillo was a 6th century CE celtic monk who established a hermit's cell on this site. His original cell is long gone, likely constructed from wattle, daub and a wall of stones. The site was probably chosen as it is the source of a natural spring (under the altar in the current six person chapel). The current chapel is of an unknown age and has been repaired many times over centuries. It is likely that St. Trillo kept livestock in the marshes that once occupied the land which is now currently the town centre. Rhos-on-Sea gets its name from this site. The current chapel is thought to be the smallest in the UK.
