Description

Exterior view of Conwy Castle, a medieval fortress built by Edward I, with a body of water in the foreground, most likely Afon Gyffin, with small boats kept on the banks. Five of the towers can be seen with battlements, and at the base of the castle is a wide pointed arch that leads to a passageway towards the town and castle entrance. Even lower than this, to the right is a similar arch.
