We were in cornwall and thought we would visit the ruins. It was very beautiful. It's quite amazing to see the church walls and the surrounding cemetery. The pictures that were shown to us shows quite a beautiful church. Very historical

Eerily. Ethereal. Enthralling. What a special place! We've attended concerts here and the've been amazing. Other times, just enjoyed the tragic spectacle of this open air cathedral.

Very nice place to visit, not exactly in Cornwall but not a bad drive from the town. There is really nothing like it

Historic StRaphael's Ruins will always remain a special place in my heart. Majical and powerful the energy you feel when you walk through. Very peaceful. I lived there for many years and still remember when it burned down...I was 6 years old when it happened. Great view from the back and enjoy the smell of the distant fields....only in St-Raphael's...

The ruins are well worth a visit just to learn a little more about the area. The bell stands at the entrance to the church ruins and was partially melted by the fire that destroyed the church. That must have been a very intense fire.
