Castell Carreg Cennen can be found in the village of Trapp, 4 miles south of Llandeilo. The castle occupies a spectacular location above a limestone precipice and much of the original structure is still standing, with some areas restored. A beautiful spot with some incredible ruins to explore - definitely worth a trip.
A short walk from the Llandovery town centre, the ruins of Llandovery Castle occupy a hill overlooking the town. Thought to have been built around 1116, the castle was attacked on numerous occasions as the Normans fought the Welsh forces for control. It was left a partial ruin in the 14th century and never rebuilt.
Llandovery is also home to an amazing 5m stainless steel statue of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan, a Welsh hero, gruesomely executed by King Henry IV after attempting to lead the Kings army into an ambush of Owain Glyndwrs forces. His statue now overlooks Llandovery Castle and the site of his execution.
