Castle Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Building work began in 1283 under Master James of St George who built for his royal patron a castle with walls decorated with bands of coloured stone and polygonal towers like those in Constantinople. Grandiose in design, it was to serve as the seat of the English government in the principality. This is where the first English Prince of Wales was born in April 1284, the future Edward II.
