The Most Fascinating Castles In Wales

Conwy Castle, Wales - built by Edward I in the 13th century. One of the key castles of the king's "iron ring" of fortresses constructed in Wales. The stronghold was quite an expensive undertaking (it is estimated that Edward spent 15,000 pounds - 162 million pounds in 2009) on the construction, which makes it the most costly castle in the Welsh history. Today Conwy is declared a World Heritage Site & its eight towers, overlooking the Conwy estuary, are the iconic image of North Wales.
