things to do: Historical
Dolbadarn Castle, Llanberis

Probably built by Llywelyn ab Iorwerth ('the Great') early in the thirteenth century, the castle is dominated by a massive round-towered keep, still standing up to 50 feet (15.2m) high.

 
Gwydir Chapel, Llanrwst

Simple stone-built chapel built in 1673, noted for its fine painted ceiling.

 
Dolwyddelan Castle, Dolwyddelan

Dolwyddelan is traditionally the birthplace of Llywelyn ap Iorwerth, though the actual site was perhaps the vanished castle of the rocky knoll in the valley floor (above). There is no evidence for any building at the present castle site earlier than the early 13th century, when the area came under Llywelyn's control. The site covers two routes into Snowdonia, and admirably demonstrates Llywelyn's scheme of defence and control.
