Lansallos is a remote site on the coast between Polperro and Polruan. A medieval church now stands on the original Celtic Christian site which is associated with St Selwys, but nothing remains about the saint themselves. As can be seen from the photograph, the location is rugged, on the cliffs and a typical 'edge of the world' site preferred by the monks. It is also set on the top of a hill flanking the River Fowey. Several Celtic saints established prayer communities in this area and the neighbouring Lanteglos-by-Fowey and Polruan both had prayer settlements too.
