Carreg Cennen Castle

Tir Y Castell Farm, Trapp, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, SA19 6UA, Wales

Welsh Tourist Board

There are few castles in Wales - or Europe for that matter - which can boast a more spectacular location than Carreg Cennen. Its ruins crown a precipitous crag in a remote corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Carreg Cennen, its origins shrouded in obscurity, is the ultimate romantic ruin. A visit to Carreg Cennen is an adventure - not least for the sight of the breathtaking 100mtrs/325ft cliff on which the castle is perched and the dramatic trek through the passageway cut into the cliff-face, which leads to a natural cave beneath the fortifications.
