We also want to talk about Portmeirion, a villa built in style Italian which has a very original appearance. For this reason, the town has been chosen as the setting for different filming, such as the television series "The Prisoner". It is important to note that, screened by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion has become a major Welsh destination.
Facing the waters of the Menai Strait we find Beaumaris, a small fishing village that houses beautiful colored houses and a castle built by Edward I of England, among other buildings of interest.
Another town worth discovering, especially if you're a book lover, is Hay-on Wye. And it is that here you can find numerous shops of books used. Even books can be found on the same street. In addition, nearby there is a 12th century castle.
