Wales is a land of stunning scenery where mountains, valleys, coasts, and cliffs vie for attention. From Pembrokeshire’s heritage coastline to Brecon Beacons to the towering mountains of Snowdonia, to the modern city of Cardiff, the country’s rich history is everywhere.
Spectacular crumbling castles, medieval abbeys, and ancient churches beckon. Stone circles lie scattered among the quiet and solitude of rolling hills and moors. Backroads hide quiet lakes.
A cultural heritage of poetry, music, and song intermingle with the ancient Celtic language. The museums of traditional Welsh market towns and small villages bear witness to the legacy of a proud and vibrant culture. Industrial heritage sites honour the men who worked the slate and mined the land.
Wales is a country of legend, myth and romance—a place with a unique combination of natural beauty and living heritage. It is soft and tranquil, vigorous and intriguing, wild and forbidding. Its moods are always changing, but it never fails to enchant.
