Visit Criccieth Castle.

This castle was built about 1230 by the Welsh Prince Llywelyn the Great and it stands on a rocky peninsula overlooking the little seaside resort giving lovely views over Tremadog Bay. The twin-towered gatehouse is one of the castles most splendid features. The castle was captured by Owain Glyndwr in 1404, burnt and sacked and it never rose again. In the castle there are two exhibitions - one an the castles of native Welsh princes and another on Gerald of Wales and the Welsh Princes.
