As if its spectacular situation, foreboding might and great power were not sufficient to ensure the fame of this magnificent castle, Harlech is also inseparably linked with Welsh myth, with the tragic heroine of Branwen, from the Mabignogion. It is small wonder that Harlech Castle is one of the most familiar strongholds of Britain and, seen from a bluff of rock to the South of the town, the view of the Castle, sea and mountain panorama is truly breathtaking.
The Castle was built during King Edward I's second campaign in North Wales and forms part of the iron ring of castles surrounding the coastal fringes of Snowdonia.
The Castle is a World Heritage Site.
