Remains of Aberystwyth Castle
Aberystwyth Castle (Castell Aberystwyth) was built in response to the First Welsh War in the late 13th century, replacing an earlier fortress. During a national uprising by Owain Glyndŵr, the Welsh captured the castle in 1404, but it was recaptured by the English four years later. In 1637 it became a Royal mint by Charles I, and produced silver shillings. The castle was slighted by Oliver Cromwell in 1649 LinkExternal link .

The ruins are a scheduled Ancient Monument and are Grade I-listed (Cadw Building ID: 10313 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
