Iron Age Forts – walk up to Tre’r Ceiri on the Rivals mountain range to see the remains of an Iron Age Fort.
The Romans – visit Segontium in Caernarfon to see what the area was like when the Romans came in 77AD and learn the tale of Emperor Maximus (Macsen Wledig) who fell in love with a local girl in his dreams and travelled from Rome to find her.
Castles – which one will you choose to visit? Caernarfon Castle and Conway Castle are two imposing reminders of the reign of Edward 1 while Criccieth Castle is much smaller and humbler. Harlech Castle reminds us of long ago uprisings.
Churches – always a mine of historical information. Visit St Beuno’s Church in Clynnog Fawr to see where the pilgrims stopped on their way to Bardsey Island, or visit the medieval church at Pistyll where you will find no electricity and straw on the floor.
Bardsey Island – take a boat trip from Pwllheli for a visit to Bardsey Island where twenty thousand saints are supposedly buried. Take a picnic and enjoy watching the seals in the bay.
