Caernarfon Castle

One of a series of castles built by Edward I after his 1283 conquest of Wales, construction started that year, and continued for about forty years. It is from Caernarfon Castle that each new Prince of Wales, and his eventual betrothed, is first publically presented. The small balcony where they stand looks out on part of the small town, but if the royals look just down and to the left, the main thing they'll see is an outhouse.
