Lonely Planet review
The ever-visible ragged arches and tumbledown walls of Dinas Brân mark the remnants of a short-lived 13th-century castle of which it was said 'there was not a mightier in Wales nor a better in England'. It was burnt by Edward I after it was surrended to him in advance of his invasion.
