Croeso i Fae Caerdydd, cartref y Cynulliad, cartref y celfyddydau, cartref Eisteddfod Genedlaethol 2018 - a chyn-gartref porthladd glo fwya'r byd ar un adeg.

Efallai mai gwleidyddiaeth, gloddesta ac hamddena sy'n mynd â bryd y rhan fwyaf o'r ymwelwyr i'r Bae erbyn heddiw, ond mae atgofion o'r gorffennol i'w gweld yn frith o gwmpas y lle.

Faint o'r rhain allwch chi ddod o hyd iddyn nhw yn ystod eich ymweliad â maes yr Eisteddfod eleni, a faint y'ch chi'n gwybod amdanyn nhw?

Welcome to Cardiff Bay, the venue for this year's National Eisteddfod. Since its regeneration, it has become the political and cultural centre of the city. But there are still glimpses of the vanished history of the city's docklands in the buildings and street art. How many of these are you familiar with and how much do you know about them?

Sgwâr Loudoun oedd canolbwynt ardal Bae Teigr. Roedd yn gartref i gymuned amlddiwylliant cyntaf ac enwocaf Cymru gyda thros 57 o ieithoedd, gan gynnwys y Gymraeg, i'w clywed ar ei strydoedd.

Loudoun Square, once the beating heart of Tiger Bay, where sailors and workers from over 50 countries settled. The area was razed during the 1960s and a thriving community was displaced.

Am wythnos, mae'n gartref i brif lwyfan yr Eisteddfod ond mae Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru hefyd yn gartref parhaol i wyth sefydliad celfyddydol - gan gynnwys Urdd Gobaith Cymru, Cerddorfa Genedlaethol Gymreig y BBC ac Opera Cenedlaethol Cymru. Adeg Steddfod, bydd nifer o berfformiadau theatrig a'r Babell Lên wedi'u lleoli yma hefyd.

The Millennium Centre is nicknamed The Armadillo due to its copper-coloured dome. The striking bilingual inscription was written by poet Gwyneth Lewis. The Welsh version "Creu Gwir Fel Gwydr o Ffwrnais Awen" translates as "Creating truth like glass from the furnace of inspiration."

Mae'r Eglwys Norwyaidd yn un o adeiladau mwyaf adnaybyddus y Bae. Roedd yn gartref oddi cartref i forwyr o Norwy - yn enwedig yn ystod yr Ail Ryfel Byd. Heddiw mae'n ganolfan gelfyddydau gyda golygfeydd godidog.

Roald Dahl was baptised at the Norwegian Church and when it came under threat of demolition he headed the campaign to rescue it. The landmark building is now an arts centre.

Ar un adeg, roedd adeilad ysblennydd y Pierhead yn ganolbwynt i'r byd masnach Cymreig. Yn ystod wythnos yr Eisteddfod, hwn fydd cartref Shwmae Caerdydd, y ganolfan i ddysgwyr Cymraeg.

Once the focal point of commerce in Wales, the iconic Pierhead building was built in 1897 as the headquarters for the Bute Dock Company. It is now a visitor, events and conference venue which will host activities for Welsh learners during Eisteddfod week.

Wrth ymyl hen adeilad y Pierhead mae un o adeiladau newydd y Bae, sef Y Senedd. Mae'r simdde yn dod â golau dydd i grombil yr adeilad ac yn awyru'r Siambr mewn modd naturiol. Fan hyn bydd y Lle Celf wedi'i leoli adeg Steddfod.

Why does the Senedd need a chimney? It's one of the most frequently asked questions about the Welsh Assembly building. Well, the funnel, wind cowl and lantern are key to ventilating and lighting the Siambr (debating chamber).

Cerflun er cof am yr actor a'r cyfansoddwr byd-enwog Ivor Novello. Cafodd ei fagu yng Nghaerdydd mewn cartref oedd yn dwyn yr enw 'Llwyn yr Eos' ac roedd yn Eisteddfodwr brwd yn ei blentyndod cyn dod yn seren y sgrîn fawr.

The Welsh nightingale, Ivor Novello was born in Cardiff, and through his Welsh-speaking mother's influence, the young Ivor performed at Eisteddfodau across the country from an early age.

Sylwch ar y marciau ar y wal isel sy'n ymestyn draw tuag at yr Eglwys Norwyaidd. Mae'r ffosiliaid, y planhigion a'r broc môr yn cynrychioli treigl amser, ac ar y diwedd mae cerddi morwrol mewn 17 iaith.
