Conwy Castle

 

Conwy is a small walled town on the coast of northern Wales.

It is best known for the Conwy Castle and its town walls, built on the instruction of Edward I of England, between 1283 and 1289, as part of his conquest of the principality of Wales.

The castle is one of four (the others are Beaumaris, Caernarfon, and Harlech) that form a UNESCO World Heritage Site epitomizing medieval military architecture.

Across the estuary is Bodysgallen Hall, which incorporates a medieval watchtower that was used as a signal place for Conwy Castle.

Cultural
Historic Landmarks
Conwy 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, establishing Maenan Abbey. The parish church still retains some parts of the original abbey church in the east and west walls. The village has many other historic landmarks, including its famous castle.
Castles and Forts
World Heritage Sites says: “The four castles of Beaumaris, Conwy, Caernarfon, Harlech and the attendant fortified towns at Conwy and Caernarfon in Gwynedd, North Wales, are the finest examples of late 13th century and early 14th century military architecture in Europe, as demonstrated through their completeness, pristine state, evidence for organized domestic space, and extraordinary repertory of their medieval architectural form. The castles as a stylistically coherent group are a supreme example of medieval military architecture designed and directed by James of St George (c. 1230-1309), King Edward I of England’s chief architect, and the greatest military architect of the age.”
