As well as sheep, rain and mountains there are many castles in Wales. This one sits high on a rocky outcrop above the village of Dolwyddelan guarding the pass through the mountains from the Conwy valley.
Built by the Welsh Prince Llywelyn the Great at the end of the twelfth century it was later captured by Edward 1st from Llywelyn's grandson, Llywelyn. Eventually it fell into ruin and later in the nineteenth century some restoration was done. It is now owned by Cadw, the Welsh heritage organisation.
