Conwy is a nice little town situated in North Wales approximately 35 miles south of Liverpool and 35 miles south west of Chester. It is dominated by the castle which was built in the late 1200's by Edward I.

It is hard to imagine looking up at the Castle walls that people actually lived here over 700 years ago!!!! That battles were fought, cannons probably boomed out and arrows flew back and forth to protect this castle.

The castle is the dominant feature in this little town, nestling in the arms of the old walls that at once protected it from invaders. Now its the tourists that invade the place.

    What a great place! I came across your page by accident, and I never knew that this place exists. I will make sure I see it whenever I have a chance to see England. Thank you for sharing your wonderful photos and all the info.
