Near the village, at Cenarth Falls, the river Teifi emerges suddenly from a deep ravine over a ledge forming a maginificent waterfall when the river is in full spate and the pitcuresque spot is popular with tourists.
Below the bridge you can see fishermen, sometimes in coracles, pitching their skills against salmon and sewin. The National Coracle Centre with examples from around the world including Tibet and Iraq.

The quaint town on Llandysul is located on the river Teifi on the border between Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire. The river Teifi at Llandysul is a mecca for anglers and canoeists.
Llandysul's oldest building is the 13th century Church of St Tysul. Inside the church is an ancient early Christian inscribed stone, called the Velfor Stone it commemorates Velvoria, daughter of Brohomaglus and inscribed in Latin and Ogham, an ancient Irish language - evidence of Irish settlers here at the time.
Historically, Llandysul was the hub of the Welsh woollen industry where thousands of people were employed in the water driven mills during the industrial revolution - weavers, spinners, dyers, knitters, drapers, tailors.
A few working mills still exist - such as Rock Mill at nearby Capel-Dewi. The National Wool Museum at nearby Drefach Felindre features working looms and weaving machines and lots of events and activities throughout the year.
