In the county of Gwynedd, in Northwest Wales, is the royal city of Caernarfon. This striking city is one of the most popular in all of England for history buffs and fans of architecture because of the many striking creations built in this town throughout the years. Chief among these are the stunning castles and forts that dot the Welsh landscape. The Segontium, for instance, is a sprawling fort that dates back to the days of the Roman Empire. Caernarfon was a strategic spot for Rome and its interests and this massive stone building is of great interest to anyone interested in the history of this great civilization. More recently, though, and perhaps more stunning is the great Caernarfon Castle. This imposing edifice is an enormous stone castle built by the first King Edward. Somewhat based on the design of Constantinople's walls, the castle is easily the most impressive feature of this beautiful town. In the glory days of the United Kingdom's empire this castle was seen as a symbol of the strength and power of England and its King.

Many think that the castle dates back to around the year 1200 and this view is supported by the fact that the town sprang to life as a bustling borough by the end of the thirteenth century. Through the years, many more impressive buildings of ancient age were built and demolished although some of the most glorious stand proudly to this day and can be seen by anyone curious enough to sniff them out. Hole in the Wall Street, a popular tourist spot, is home to the Market Hall, which is easily among the oldest structures in Caernarfon. The Castle Hotel, The Four Alls, and Pen Deitch are also among the buildings that are over hundreds of years old but the most interesting building would probably be the Black Boy Inn. This is the oldest public house in the city and the pub that it houses was built back in the 1500s. Many visitors and residents of the city believe that the Black Boy Inn is haunted and countless ghost stories abound about the possible supernatural beings that may inhabit the inn. Naturally, the Black Boy Inn is visited quite often by curious folks whose sole intent is to see something of this nature.

These days, Caernarfon is still a busy burg and it has been refurbished countless times in the past couple centuries to keep it in good standing with the present. Caernarfon has its own railway station and countless secondary schools which give its citizens premium educations. Caernarfon is also the most Welsh-speaking city in all of Wales, with nearly ninety percent of the city using Welsh as their native tongue. Not surprisingly, Caernarfon has become the site of a growing Welsh pride community, since it is so thoroughly Welsh. Those that belong to this group, however, should also be proud to simply be from Caernarfon. The town is filled to the brim with fascinating history and incredible sights and that is something that should appeal to everyone no matter what their nationality.
