Wales is home to some of the most unique places on the face of the Earth and much of this has to do with the incredibly close-knit mindset of the people that have populated the land for time immemorial. The Welsh language is a rather tricky and confusing one and a map of Wales will likely be enough to tax the brain of even the most verbose wordsmith. Fortunately, Corwen is a rather easy name to pronounce compared to some of its neighbors like Llangollen or the county of Meirionnydd. For posterity's sake, Corwen is located in the slightly hard to say county of Denbighshire. It sits along the gorgeous and pristine River Dee and, with a population of less than twenty five hundred, it has maintained much of the natural beauty that it has always possessed.

Though Corwen lacks a bit in stature, the fact remains that it is in fact one of the most cherished and beloved towns in Wales. This is because of the towns connections to the famed Welsh Hero Owain Glyndwr. What Glyndwr lacked in vowels he more than made up for in courage and strength and he is easily one of the most famous figures in the history of any part of the United Kingdom. He was the last Prince of Wales and he staged a long and ultimately unsuccessful war against the English Crown. Much of this action took place in the early 1400s when Henry IV ruled England and Glyndwr was one of the few Welsh leaders willing to stand up to the English. He spent a lot of time in and around Wales but Corwen was one of his favorite locations. To commemorate his being crowned Prince of Wales, Corwen erected a large and favorable bronze statue of Glyndwr in 2007.

There is more to see in Corwen than just a three year old statue, though. A gorgeous and stately motte of a Norman Castle is still highly visible and it attracts countless tourists who are interested in the history of castle making during those formative years of Norman and Saxon lords. The famed Church of St. Mael and St. Sulien can also be found in Corwen and it dates back to around the same time as the motte. Both are beautiful landmarks but the Church is particularly ravishing.

Though Corwen is small and slightly out of the way, the advent of motor roads and railways have linked the town to the rest of the United Kingdom with considerable aplomb. These days the town actually enjoys a rather sizable bit of through traffic because of the fact that it is the only real town between London and Holyhead on the A5. As such, Corwen is now endowed with a few nice and comfortable inns and eateries that really help to give the town a new school flavor amid its antiquated charms. Fret not, though; these modern amenities in no way detract from the scenic and picturesque beauty that Corwen has always maintained throughout its existence.
