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.
