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...

Needs serious restoration, squirrels running out of nuts bring your own...OK actually many years ago worked open air concerts at location for the College, it's beautiful..stop in..great accoustics

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.

Found this site quite interesting... The old architecture is most intriguing - We suggest going between the months of Late April to mid October...

I have visited St. Raphael's Ruins several times since I moved to this area. It has historical significance and a great, mystical beauty. I always feel somehow altered for the better after a visit. On one occasion a choral ensemble was playing. Wine and cheese was offered. It was lovely!
