Caernarfon Castle, Wales

Caernarfon Castle is located in northwest Wales. It is in a beautiful setting, right on the water. Not only extremely picturesque, this is the traditional home of the original Prince of Wales. Everyone crowned prince in this capacity since the first (back in Edward I’s time) through today’s current placeholder, Prince Charles, has been crowned here.

It has amazing views.

Sorry about the angle of the 2nd picture, above. I wanted to show the view from that side, but my shoulders wouldn’t fit through the opening well enough for me to get the right shot. Oh, well.

Here’s a look at the castle from its proper front.

And here’s some pictures from inside.

It is a beautiful castle, reflecting an impressive history. If you get one chance to see a Welsh castle, I strongly suggest this one.
