|Places of Interest|
Cardiff Castle is the most precious of all the jewels in the crown of the capital city. Sitting at its very heart, the Castle is its most famous landmark and focus for local pride.
Established almost 2,000 years ago as a fortress by the Romans, the site on the banks of the River Taff was chosen because of its defensive qualities at the gateway of the Welsh Valleys.
Then came the Normans in the 11th and 12th centuries, who developed the dramatic and imposing keep.
The interior of the main house is an embodiment of the 3rd Marquess of Bute. Together with architect William Burges they created a series of neo-gothic and fairytale towers, influenced by the medieval castles of Europe.
