Villages in Penrhyndeudraeth
In North Wales lies this spot, certainly one of the most unusual I have ever visited. It is called Porteirion, and it is a village that was created between 1925 and 1975 by the Welsh architect Sir Clough William Ellis, who bought the land, the sea, in a kind of estuary, and literally created his own town, just as he desired it. With a neo-Italian Renaissance style, the colors and motifs, Portmeirion, came from an architectural visit to the Italian city of Portofino. But if we look closely we can find oriental elements as well as British influence, mostly in Victorian style. The whole village is now a huge museum, with a number of hotels and shops, very expensive. The effect is strange, because you can feel the personality of its creator in the whole town, which does not lack detail. The town features a theater, central square, churches, harbor and much more. It is A sort of town or ideal world in the style of Peter Pan and his 'Neverland' (translated as Neverland irregularly). Highly recommended visits to the North Wales area.

Portmeirion Village
The house at No. 6 is a very low, round building, so low that to get inside you have to bend almost double. It's famous for being the home of the protagonist of the futuristic British TV series "The Prisoner" back in the 60's. The inside is almost bare, though, as the interior shots were filmed in a studio in London. But all outdoor shots in the series were filmed here in Portmeirion. In north Wales, between lush forests and a river estuary, this entire village is the work of the architect St Clough Williams-Ellis, who devoted much of his life to building it. The eclectic mix of styles has to be seen to be believed, with everything from Italian to Cote d'Azur to Asian influences. Fourteen cottages are available to be rented as accommodation, although they are expensive, around 500 euros a week. There is also a 4* hotel available for visitors.

Snowdonia National Park
Snowdonia National Park is a really beautiful place with lots of thick forests and the highest mountains in Wales and England. There are also some really charming towns like Betws, Coed, and Llanrwst where you can find trails that stretch out to all corners of the park. All in all, it's a great place to spend a few fun days out in nature. There are lots of good trails and things to see, like Swallow Falls, Gwydyr Castle, and various lakes. Oh, don't forget about the little train that takes you to Mt. Snowdon
Of Cultural Interest in Penrhyndeudraeth
Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and is located within the 'Snowdonia National Park'. Its summit is known as "the mound" and is located at an altitude of 1085 meters above sea level. In addition to the significant snowfall that falls from October to April, it is said that here you'll find one of the wettest climates in all of Britain. On these majestic mountain ridges you can see cliffs to the north and east, grasslands to the south and west, and the summit offers one of the broadest views in the British Isles: with clear visibility you can see Scotland, England, Ireland and the Isle of Man, but sadly such days are rare in this climate! To reach the summit, there are several possible routes, some more adventurous than others. Climbing the mountain during winter is not recommended, and many experienced hikers have died attempting to do so.
