The Harlech Castle was built in the heart of Snowdonia National park. This beautifully crafted stone castle is facing the Irish Sea, giving you breathtaking views with a medieval experience.
In 1283, building of this magnificent castle began and was completed in 1289. The history behind this was that James of St George the master builder and architect was instructed by King Edward 1, during the English invasion of Wales.
The Castle was invulnerable at that time and stood against many attacks. Mainly due to the two rings of walls and towers that surrounded the castle. Also, an immensely, strong east gatehouse was built to defend the castle.
