Did you know that Wales is the 'Castle Capital of the World'?
With over 600 castles scattered throughout the country, Wales has more castles per square mile than any other country in Europe. Not all are still standing - 100 are ruins or restored buildings and the remainder are left as mounds and ditches. Wales' ancient history has left a wealth of Iron Age hill forts, Roman ruins and castles.
