Aberystwyth Castle

The construction of the castle was instigated by Edward I on the site of an earlier stronghold. It was captured by the Welsh Prince, Owain Glyndwr, in 1404, subsequently returning to English hands before finally losing its strategic importance. All that remains nowadays are the ruins of the tower and main gateway.
