Wales Carreg Cennen Castle

Today we visited one of the most photographed castles in Wales, Carreg Cennen. This fortress sits on a high limestone cliff, overlooking the area farms. The views of the lush, green countryside are beautiful. It is an imposing spot for a castle.

I decided to take my torch (British speak for flashlight) down the dimly lit hall that led to a pitch-black dungeon. It was really erie to walk the hall alone in the dark. I will tell you that I only got down a few of the stairs that lead to the dungeon before I chickened out. I thought that I heard something. Perhaps a ghost from battles past. Make sure to bring a flashlight or borrow one from the cafe/ gift store before you walk up to the castle.
