Caernarfon

IMG_1913

Just a 15min drive from Llanberis Village, the main attraction in Caernarfon is the Caernarfon Castle. A medieval fortress where Prince Charles was invested at the Prince of Wales. It was our first time visiting a castle and we had fun exploring all the secret passageways that either led to another part of the castle or room. Probably used for an escape if the castle was taken over  and the rooms probably as watch-rooms for security.

Unlike the most castles whose towers are circular shape, the towers at Caernarfon castle is Polygonal and if you look at the castle walls closely, you realise that different colour stones arranged in bands.

Here’s some pictures we took at the castle!!

Be careful going up and down the narrow spiral stairs. We had to shout out to make sure no one was coming down so we could go up.

A trip we made together we our new found friends!!! Parul and Deval.

Food:
We suggest trying a restaurant called Blas. We thought their Chargrilled Chicken and Bacon sandwich with sweet potato fries was the best!!! Parul and Deval liked the baked aubergine. Blas is just a right turn down wall street from palas.
