Wales castle

The history of Wales is a history of fights against enemy invasions from within and outside Wales. To defend against invasions, a lot of castles and forts were built in Wales.

The territories ruled by princes endured even though exposed to the fear of invasion many times. The castles and forts that are the proud effort of the Welsh are preserved as a valuable cultural heritage.

I want to see the baronial castles and forts that tower in meadows.

Thanks for reading!

The majority of castles in Wales were built by the English as conquerers after 1282, e.g. The ring of castles around Gwynedd built by Edward I. Some like Dolbadarn or Dryslwyn are Welsh.

An interesting website, I've been married to my Japanese wife now for 20 years and I forget sometimes how little is known about the UK by the Japanese. By the way, the flag of the UK is the Union Flag. It is only called the Union Jack when flown on a ship.
