The first castle was built in 1110 high above the river. It was fought over by the Welsh and English for 200 years and was rebuilt in 1233 and again in 1377. Abandoned since the 18th century, it is now in ruins although the two round towers and parts of the walls are standing.

Cadw, open all year.
