Petit Futé's opinion on CAERPHILLY CASTLE

Plate millesim 2022

Dominating an impressive 12 hectare site, this castle is the largest in the country and the second largest in Great Britain, after Windsor. This is the example of the perfect medieval castle: crenellated towers, drawbridges, dungeons... Built on the remains of a Roman fort and the ruins of a Norman fort, the castle was built in the 13th century by the Anglo-Norman lord Gilbert de Clare for a defensive purpose: to protect itself from Llywelyn the Great. But he managed to destroy a large part of it; the English then rushed to rebuild it.

Premier chateau que nous avons visité lors de notre séjour en Gales, il nous a laissé une forte impression. Même si une partie est en ruine (il date du XIIème siècle et a subit beaucoup d'assauts), il est possible de rentrer à l'interieur et de trouver de belles pièces (quasiment toutes non meublées comme tous les autres chateau de la région que nous avons visiter ensuite): Des zones sont aménager, expliquant comment le chateau se défendait, on peut aussi approcher de près baliste, trebuchet et catapulte. Pour moi, une visite à faire, pour entamer le voyag, d'autant plus si on prend l'Explorer Pass (à acheter sur place).
