Conwy Castle in North Wales is one of the finest medieval castles in Europe
|Impressive walls guard the castle|
Built on the orders of King Edward I
The castle was established in 1283 as part of the ring of defences
encircling the Welsh heartland of Snowdonia in Gwynedd
|Gorse clinging to the stone wall of the Kitchen Tower adds a splash of colour|
Rising from the very rock on which it was built.
The castle is an imposing sight and regardless of the passage of time
is still rather intimidating

A real sense of domination pervades and the genius of
medieval masons is still evident in the ancient stones.
