Wales is part of the United Kingdom and it is one of the most beautiful parts that we can see. Taking a trip through this southern area is something impressive, since we find amazing landscapes and beautiful villages. It is known for being a land with many castles, as it was a very protected area, but also with small and charming towns and landscapes that will take our breath away.
Definitely worth it consider a trip to the Wales area, since we will fall in love with this area. One of the smallest nation in the United Kingdom but that has nothing to envy the others. We are going to see some of the main places to visit in Wales.
Cardiff, the capital
Cardiff is the capital of Wales and therefore a must see. It stands out for its castle dating from the time of Roman rule although it has undergone many renovations and extensions throughout history. Not to be missed is the Clock Tower and the Animal Wall. Then we can visit the Castillo neighborhood, which is its most commercial and lively area. Also worth seeing is the beautiful Bute Park, one of the UK's largest city parks, situated along the River Taff. Visit the beautiful old galleries The Royal Arcade, a place to find souvenirs and antiques. It continues with a visit to the Central Market to see typical products and its History Museum.
Swansea, his second city
This is the second largest and most important city in Wales, making it another place to visit. Its center was rebuilt after the Second World War by bombing. You can see Castle Square and visit Oxford Street, its commercial area. Its large market also stands out, with the best gastronomic products in Wales. In this place you have to walk through its beautiful bay and pass by the Mumbles Lighthouse, its famous lighthouse.
Conwy, a charming town
In Wales we have nice little charming towns, like Conwy in North Wales. A walled town that has been declared a World Heritage Site. Noted for its imposing XNUMXth century castle that will undoubtedly attract our attention and that still conserves part of its wall. In the villa you can see the Plas Mawr house with beautiful Elizabethan architecture. We can also visit the smallest picturesque house in Great Britain and the port area, which is very beautiful.
Snowdonia National Park
This beautiful national park located in the Northwest Wales is full of mountains, valleys, lakes and waterfalls. A place that not only surprises if we pass through it, but it is also a paradise for those who want to go hiking in the middle of nature. In this park is Mount Snowdon, the highest peak in England, as well as other lower peaks that are ideal for beginners in mountaineering. According to legend, at the top of the mountain is the ogre Ritha Gawr, who was executed by King Arthur.
Llandudno, enjoy the Victorian style
This is another of the charming towns of North Wales, a place that is also a great holiday destination in the United Kingdom. There is a great tram that goes up to the top of the city. Being such a touristy place we know that we will find all kinds of services, from shops to restaurants, hotels and cafes. It stands out for its elegant promenade, but also for the Victorian-style buildings. Also, apparently it was here that Lewis Carroll met a little Londoner who inspired him to create 'Alice in Wonderland'.
