Caernarfon – Gwynedd - Wales

Caernarfon is a small town (about 10,000 inhabitants) in the Gwynedd County - Wales, mainly known for the well-maintained remains of the medieval Cearnarfon Castle.
No pictures of this ruin for a while, maybe again in the future.
Sorry Craig and other lovers of old dilapidated British castles.

A walk through the town showed that there are more nice aspects to be found.
In this post we concentrate the colourful shops in Bridge Street (Y Bont Bridd)

◄ After that, as we walk through, we look back one more time and look backwards in the direction of Castle Square to admire once more the attractive facades. ►
