Might look familiar to you. Might seem like a made-up word. We can assure you it’s not. It's the name of a town in Wales, just one of this incredible country's many quirks.

Wales may be small, but it certainly wasn't a pushover. Over centuries the Welsh built 600 castles. And even though many of them are now in ruins, you’ll still be amazed at the diversity of these defensive buildings. And what’s more is they’re usually located in gorgeous hill top locations.
National parks cover 20% of Wales. You have the stunning and rugged coastlines of the Pembrokeshire Coast. You have the rolling plains and hidden caves of the Brecon Beacons. And you have the altitude defying mountains of Snowdonia. So, if you’re looking for natural wonders, then look no further and visit Wales.
In Wales, history is tangled with myths. And there’s a legend about every hill and lake you pass by. Listen to the tale of the red dragon and how it’s become the national animal. Hear the moving story of Gelert, the dog, and his heroic deed. And discover the places connected to King Arthur.
The longest place name in Europe means 'St Mary's Church in the Hollow of the White Hazel near a Rapid Whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio near the Red Cave'. And if you think this is some sort of joke, then you’re right. Because this name was given as a publicity stunt in the 1860s. You’ll come across many of these odd facts as you journey through Wales.
