Penzance is a coastal town and holiday resort in Cornwall. It gets its name from the Cornish “Pens Sans” which means ‘holy headland’ which refers to the headland where a chapel was built by early Christians more than 1,000 years ago; the headland is situated to the west of the harbour in Penzance. In 1512 the town received a royal charter enabling it to hold regular markets, then the following year it was granted another charter so that annual fairs could also be held. In the surrounding area there are both Stone Age and Bronze Age artifacts including tombs and standing stones which show that the area has been inhabited for millennia. The town is situated in a bay which is overlooked by St Michael’s Mount which can be accessed either by boat or, at low tide, you can walk across the causeway. The church at the top of the Mount was built by Benedictine monks from Mont St Michel in Normandy. It became a place of pilgrimage after a vision of the archangel Gabriel was seen on the Mount in 495 AD. It was only after the Norman conquest of 1066 that the church was built.
