Beaumaris, Anglesey

Beaumaris, which means "beautiful march," is full of defensive innovations. A tower in the inner ward contains an attractive, vaulted chapel.like the romance and commanding visuals of castles, this tour of Welsh castles will provide you with a survey of a goodly number of surviving structures scattered about the countryside. Not yet complete, this tour is meant only to stimulate your appetite for more information and to help you plan perhaps a visit to explore.
