The prettiest towns in Wales (which you can’t or shouldn’t miss)

Wales is one of the most beautiful nations for sightseeing, especially if you are looking for a combination of history, nature and adventure. Despite its small size, it houses many charms such as villages of great beauty. In general, when visiting the area, you tend to go to Cardiff , which is its capital. But there is much more to see to know castles in which the great battles of history were fought and the pirate caves or discover their many legends . But, you should not miss its villages because they are a real wonder to behold.


This town is one of the most beautiful and curious to see because the Glaslyn River divides its streets. This town, which is located in Gwynedd (Snowdonia region), is very small and characterized by being very peaceful.

It is a town of great natural beauty, especially in spring, because of the small hill covered by violets and trees . But its appeal does not lie only in this particularity. It is also an interesting municipality because of the legend about Prince Llyweling the Great , who is believed to have lived there.

As they say, he was a great fan of hunting and always went with his dogs , having a special affection for Gelert . However, he killed him for believing that he had attacked his son in the crib rather than seeing that he had defended him from the attack of a wolf. Faced with his grief, he raised the grave , which is one of the main tourist attractions and which gives the town its name.



Even more beautiful – although it is all a matter of taste – is this town, which is at the entrance to the Snowdonia National Park , which is known for being the most beautiful natural region in all of Wales.

There you can see old stone houses that house bars and restaurants where you can eat the typical lamb dish along with a pint of Welsh beer. Moreover, it is a good environment for activities such as camping outdoors or hiking, cycle through the forests, lakes, mountains and rivers around. Of course, the waterfall next to the stone bridge is not to be missed.


Of this municipality, its 13th century castle , which rises above the Conwy River , as well as its great medieval wall , draws attention above all. The tour of this village should also take to see the smallest house in the United Kingdom, which is located in the harbor and the Elizabethan mansion Plas Mawr . And, of course, you must walk through the High Street, which is full of cafes, bookstores and restaurants.


This town is a small fishing village through which it is ideal to stroll through its low colored houses located on the main street and leading to the castle , which was built by Edward I of England. The bay is also an ideal place to stroll and, to recharge your batteries, it is well worth trying its meat and seafood .


This town is also located on the coast, being bathed by the waters of the Irish Sea . This municipality, which is known as ‘ The Queen of Welsh resorts ‘, lives with the sea as its central axis.

In fact, around its promenade , there are hotels, walkways and houses where you have to look at its Victorian facades. In its surroundings, there is a wide variety of bars and restaurants .
