St Illtyd's Church, Llantwit Major, is one of the oldest and best-known parish churches in Wales.

The name of the town is an English corruption of the Welsh name Llanilltud Fawr ("great church of Illtud"), and on this site Saint Illtud (or 'Illtyd') is believed to have founded a teaching monastery or 'llan' during the 6th century.

The church of St Illtyd, now the parish church, contains several wall paintings dating from the Middle Ages and 17th century.
