The legend says that Welsh king Vortigern decided to build an impregnable citadel to defend against invading Saxons. However, all attempts to build it on the most perfect place failed because all the times when construction was about done the ground shook and the fortress was reduced to rubble. Merlin (Myrddin) the Wizard explained that the earth tremors were caused by the fight of two dragons underground – the Red one and the White one. The former represented Celts, and the latter – the Saxons. White dragon was winning, but, at the end of the day, the Red one, symbol of Celtic people of Cymru, will win the battle.
This is the Caernarfon Castle where all Princes of Wales are crowned. This particular coronation throne was used during the coronation of the current Prince of Wales Charles.
On the way to Caernarfon there was a very nice Diddanfa Bed and Breakfast, just off the A55 road in St. Asaph, hosted by very friendly and hospitable family.
