Cardiff Castle (Welsh: Castell Caerdydd) is a medieval castle and Victorian architecture Gothic revival mansion, transformed from a Norman keep erected over a Roman fort in Cardiff, the capital of Wales. Cardiff Castle was a Roman garrison, a Norman stronghold and a Gothic fantasy all combined into one remarkable monument in the heart of Cardiff city with a history that spans over 2000 years. Architect William Burges was given free rein to create the lavish and opulent interiors, each breathtaking with murals, stained glass, gilding and superb craftsmanship.
