Banwen is a small village in Neath Port Talbot county borough in Wales. Banwen is part of the community of Onllwyn along with the village of Onllwyn itself and the adjacent parish of Dyffryn Cellwen. Banwen is in the Upper Dulais Valley, with views over the southern slopes of the Brecon Beacons.
It has been suggested as the birth-place of Saint Patrick who recorded that he was born in the similarly named banavem taburniae somewhere on the west coast of Britain. A service is held on the Saint’s day at the Maen St Patrick that stands alongside the Roman Road Sarn Helen, from Neath to Brecon.
