Once the site of an 11th century ring-work castle built by The Norman Peter le Sore raises a ringwork castle here after dispossessing the Welsh lord Meurig ap Hywell. St Fagans castle would be the first thing people are confronted with as they try to cross the River Ely. St Fagan's Castle has to be one of the most beautiful fortified mansions . Elizabethian in style, it is set out among the most amazing Italian inspired gardens. Truly breathtaking and well worth a visit.
