Conwy Castle is located in Conwy, Wales.
Work began on the construction of Conwy Castle in 1283.
Master James of St. George, the builder, was Master of King Edward I's Works in Wales.
Conwy Castle and the town wall were built in just four years between 1283 and 1287, involving 1,500 craftsmen and labourers.


The towers of Conwy Castle are almost identical.
Four towers are on the north and four are on the south.
The inner ward contains the suite Master James built for King Edward and Queen Eleanor in 1283.

The Great Hall was approximately 125 feet long.
A beautiful little chapel gives one of the towers its name.
Conwy was part of the ring of Welsh castles planned by King Edward I to impose English rule, enforced by English-garrisoned strongholds.
The smaller inner ward was the heart of the castle, containing the royal quarters: the King's Hall, Privy Chamber, and Presence Chamber.

If you just post a couple of links to the website of it, it'll save you to have to post about it two lines at a time

I've been there. I remember being absolutely amazed that so much of it still stands and that it was that old. Very interesting and with a wonderful history. I'd love to visit again.

Yes. Same here. It is still a rugged place and must have been awe-inspiring to the local peoples at its prime. Stone was used from the nearby dismantled Cistercian Abbey for the castle walls.
