Conwy Castle - Conway Castle - Castell Conwy is a castle in Conwy, on the north coast of Wales. It was built between 1283 and 1289 [1] during King Edward I's second campaign in North Wales.

 

Conwy castle is a gritty, dark stoned fortress which has the rare ability to evoke an authentic medieval atmosphere. The first time that visitors catch sight of the castle, commanding a rock above the Conwy Estuary and demanding as much attention as the dramatic Snowdonia skyline behind it, they know they are in the presence of a historic site which still casts a powerful spell. Conwy is the classic walled town. Its circuit of walls, over three quarters of a mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers, is one of the finest in the World.

 

Camera Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II; Lens: EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM; Focal length: 55.00 mm; Aperture: 9.0; Exposure time: 32.0 s; ISO: 200
