-I just came back from a two week visit of the castles of Wales and was very impressed! My favorites were 1: Caernarfon 2.Harlech and 3.Conwy, because of their size and complexity. You could feel the power of the days of old when men fought in these castles, and it is wonderful to be able to walk inside these walls and climb the towers. It is an experience I will never forget! And another favorite castle was Dinas Bran, high on the top of a windy hill near Llangollen, well worth the walk! +I just came back from a two week visit of the castles of Wales and was very impressed!

-Caernarfon was built to impress fear into the Welsh as Edward I's centre of government in North Wales. And impress it certainly does. It is all around you in the heart of the town with walls that emcompass part of it. The towers are taller than most of the Edward I castles (particularly the Eagle Tower) and this was done more as a show of power than of any practical use. It's awesome as pictures can often not show. Because it so easily accessible it is a 'must visit' for anyone in the area. It is however, for the same reason, very crowded most of time... +Caernarfon was built to impress fear into the Welsh as Edward I's centre of government in North Wales. And impress it certainly does.
