Caerphilly Castle (aka Caerffili), located in South Wales, was first built between 1268 and 1290 CE. The largest medieval castle in Wales, Caerphilly was built with a concentric design by Gilbert de Clare (1243-1295 CE) as a robust defence against Welsh attacks. Restored in the first half of the 20th century CE by the Marquess of Bute, it is famous for its artificial water defences which now make for a picturesque foreground to the mighty round towers and fortified gatehouses of the second largest castle in England and Wales at the time of building. Today, the castle is managed by Cadw and is open to visitors.

Sir Furry, that is just exquisite...1278, and the tremendous engineering science, the ability for construction, not to mention the imagination to conceive and place something like this on the site!

Since 2010 when I first began to participate a bit in the potential of the Internet, I have been assembling something of a bucket list...and I think I will going to need to live another 77 years just to accomplish all my notes of the beauty and splendor of Wales!


I have some more photos to put on.....
