Perched on a near-vertical cliff at the edge of the Irish Sea, Harlech Castle was completed in 1289.  The fortification was part of the ring of castles built by Edward I during his invasion of Wales.  The castle was captured and used as a headquarters by Owain Glyndŵr as he rose up against the English in the early 15th century.
