Touring Welsh Castles

Tretower, Breconshire

At Tretower, the beautifully preserved Manor known as Tretower Court sits next to the ruins of the Norman Castle, partly destroyed by Owain Glyndwr and then abandoned. A massive circular tower remains. The Manor gives us an exceptionally complete example of a late medieval fortified manor house, with its courtyard, galleries and gatehouse. It was the seat of the illustrious Vaughan family.
