Medieval religious sites

Fife was a hub of Christian activity during the Middle Ages. The region had a wide variety of religious sites, ranging from large monastic complexes down to small chapels.

Most of these medieval religious buildings are now ruined or demolished, but some still survive as places of worship or community spaces.
