These medieval floor tiles are in one on the subsidiary chapels in the grounds of Strata Florida Abbey, a Cistercian abbey near Pontrhydfendigaid, Ceredigion. The abbey was originally founded in 1164. The name Strata Florida is a corruption of the Welsh Ystrad Fflur, meaning Valley of (the river of) Flowers.
