Pocket Guide: Criccieth Criccieth Castle Hotels

Criccieth Castle

Built in the early 13th Century by Llywelyn ab lorwerth to defend the region from the English, Criccieth Castle was heavily fortified and modified following its capture by the forces of Edward I. The site of several further battles, the castle was used as a prison until it was retaken by Owain Glyndwr in 1404. The Welsh forces then tore down the castle walls and set the building alight, turning it into the ruin we see today.
