Knowing nothing about Welsh history before, this place was a great introduction. Informative signs everywhere amongst the beautiful ruins. Interesting.

It's up a windy lane, miles from nowhere and the peace is absolutely mind blowing! The site is under the control of CADW (the Welsh equivalent of English Heritage) so you will have to pay to get in but it's worth the money just to...More
