Castell Conwy Castle, North Wales (Conway Castle)

Conwy Castle's massive military strength is due to rock on which it stands. Conwy Castle was built for Edward I, by Master James of St George, the castle is amongst the finest surviving medieval fortifications in Britain. Explore the grandeur of its high towers and curtain walls and their excellent state of preservation. Edward I spent more in a short time on any of his Welsh castles between 1277 and 1307. Conwy Castle has two barbicans (fortified gateways), eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall all sit within its distinctive elongated shape, due in part to the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. Is Conwy Castle the most magnificent of Edward Iís Welsh fortresses? and from the battlements you get breathtaking views across mountains and sea. Conwy Castle has an outer ward containing a great hall, chambers and kitchen, and a more secluded inner ward with private chambers and a royal chapel, well suited to host the royal entourage were in town.
