The Bones of Dinas Bran

The Bones of Dinas Bran, Original Watercolor Painting by Jenny Armitage

The Bones of Dinas Bran (watercolor 19 x 23) Available

This  is bits and pieces of what’s left of Castell Dinas Bran, sometimes referred to as  Crow’s Fortress or Crow Castle.  The castle was probably built  sometime in the 1260s by Gruffydd II ap Madog, making it the only Welsh Castle we visited to actually have been built by the Welsh.   The castle is now an evocative ruin perched on the hilltop above Llangollen.

We walked a mile or so up to see it after having moored within sight of it the night before.  It’s a powerful sight whether seen from above or below.

Driving out of Segovia’s old town ends with a spectacular view of the aqueduct. Driving out on a rainy night, is like driving into an impressionist painting of the aquaduct..
