  1. Isn’t that a really cool site! I used it when I was looking for castles in Wales to visit during our recent trip. Problem is that I saw sooooo many more that I want to see as well! Too many castles; too little money…

  2. Which castles did you visit while in Wales? I’m dying to go to Britain and visit many of the medieval historic sites. Like you said, too little money right now.

  3. Daphne, love the pics. Which castle was your favorite? From pics I’ve seen, Caerphilly seems like a really interesting castle to explore. I also loved the pics of Tintern Abbey.

    Mark, you’re welcome!

  4. I really loved them all! My husband preferred Chepstow. Tintern Abbey was just spectacular! I’m not sure the pictures really convey the true sense of how high the pillars/arches are.
