Llangollen (Welsh: [ɬaŋˈɡɔɬɛn] (listen)) is a town and community in Denbighshire, Wales. It is situated on the River Dee at the edge of the Berwyn range and the Dee Valley Way AONB. It had a population of 3,658 at the 2011 census.
Llangollen takes its name from the Welsh llan meaning "a religious settlement" and Saint Collen, a 7th-century monk who founded a church beside the river. St Collen is said to have arrived in Llangollen by coracle. There are no other churches in Wales dedicated to St Collen, and he may have had connections with Colan in Cornwall and with Langolen in Brittany.
