The village of Cirencester
Cirencester, the largest village, is known as the capital of the Cotswolds. The origins of this village go back to Roman times and evidence of this can be seen in the buildings.
The city used to be an important market place, mainly for wool. In Cirencester you can visit many intereting places such as the Corinium museum or the Cirencester Park. The oldest church in the region, called The Baptist, is also located in Cirencester. The church is beautiful and this is mainly because the richness of the wool market was used to finance the church.
