Pontrhydfendigaid (Welsh pronunciation: [pɔntˌr̥ɨ̞dvɛnˈdɪɡaɪ̯d]) is a village in Ceredigion, Wales. It lies on the western flank of the Cambrian Mountains, between Devil's Bridge and Tregaron. The village lies on the River Teifi, whose source is just 3 miles (5 km) to the east at Llyn Teifi. The community of Ystrad Fflur, which Pontrhydfendigaid makes most of the population of, had a population of 712 as of 2011 census.The ruins of the Cistercian Strata Florida Abbey are 1 mile south-east of the village. The abbey was founded 1164; the poet Dafydd ap Gwilym is traditionally said to be buried there and Llywelyn the Great held a council there. The station at Strata Florida was positioned to serve the village. The hillfort of Pen y Bannau is 1 km east of the village.
The village is home to an annual eisteddfod, the Eisteddfod Pantyfedwen, or colloquially the "Steddfod Bont". Concerts and other events are also held in the modern multi-purpose Pavilion here. A Celtic Music Society is based at the village's Black Lion Hotel.
The village was the birthplace and home of Caradog Jones, the first Welshman to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
It is in the Community of Ystrad Fflur.
The village takes its name from an old ford (Welsh:rhyd) across the Teifi and a bridge (pont) that was later built there. It is on the B4343 road between Tregaron to the south and Pontarfynach to the north, around 13 miles (21 km) to the south-east of Aberystwyth.
The abbey was an important centre of learning, and it is believed that one of the earliest versions of the Brut y Tywysogion was made there.
It is believed that the TV programme C'mon Midffild! is based on the village football club.
