Visions of Wales

Travel Photographer - Travel Photography

Another one of the four countries, together form the United Kingdom. Wales is famous for its spectacular mountain sceneries and its wonderfully preserved medieval castles, seaside resorts, gardens and slate mines.

The Northern part of Wales is the most scenic, containing the Snowdonia National Park. The park contains over 800 square miles of mountains, forests, lakes and waterfalls. The highest mountain in England and Wales, Snowdon, lies in the park, although Snowdon is only about 3,500 feet high and one can easily walk to the summit.

Forming a protective ring around the North Wales mountains are the castles. The five greatest - Caernarvon, Conwy, Beaumaris, Harlech and Criccieth - were all built 700 years ago to reinforce English rule over Wales. They have wonderful settings but the most spectacular is Conwy Castle. It overlooks the mouth of the river Conwy estuary and offers a wonderful view over the nearby mountains.
