St Fagans (Welsh: Sain Ffagan) is a small rural village in the west of the City of Cardiff, Capital of Wales. The community area reaches north to the M4, incorporating the residential estate of Parc Rhydlafar, and south of the River Ely, incorporating the residential estate of Westfield Park. On it's eastern edge it borders the suburb of Fairwater and to the west borders the community of St George's and St Bride's in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The Village itself and immediate surrounding area is a designated Conservation Area.
St Fagans lies on the River Ely, and previously had a railway station on the South Wales Main Line. St. Fagans is home to St. Fagans Cricket Club and St Fagans Bowls Club.
