CONWY CASTLE was built on the instruction of Edward I of England 1283-1289, as part of his conquest of the principality of Wales. It was the original site of Aberconwy Abbey, founded by Llywelyn the Great. Edward and his troops took over the abbey site and moved the monks down the Conwy valley to a new site at Maenan. It is a place in Wales where the old Welsh tongue can still be heard in widespread.

Yes. When I was on the top of the towers, wind blowed so strong. That is a historic site well preserved and full of interesting details. It was my best day in Wales.

Beautiful, I was only on the other side of castle.

Cheers, MAN
