The medieval Conwy Castle is located on the north coast of Wales. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It was built between 1283 and 1287 for King Edward I. His characteristic elongated shape, with two fortified gates called Barbicans and the eight massive towers and arches were a great element of the defense.

The castle towers offer spectacular views of the mountains and the sea.

Conwy Castle is one of the finest examples of medieval military architecture in Europe.
