As you make your way along the picturesque coastline of Wales, you'll stumble upon the enchanting Criccieth Castle. Perched atop a rocky promontory overlooking Cardigan Bay, this magnificent castle dates back to the 13th century and is steeped in Welsh history.

As you explore the castle ruins, you'll be transported back in time to the tumultuous medieval era of Wales. Visitors can wander the ancient walls and towers, take in the stunning views of the sea and mountains, and imagine the battles that were fought on these very grounds.
