  • Nice free visit, visitors centre always shut when we visited. On street parking. Basically it is the foundations of the Roman settlement, not much information on site. Short quick walk around, nice on a summer's day.
  • Only the footings left either side of a modern main road. There is an artist's impression on a stand but the information office is permanently closed.
  • Interpretation centre is still closed. One panel to explain a large and busy site, on street parking only. Of interest if you have prior knowledge or imagination
  • One of two forts in Caernarfon. Foundations left after Edward1's army stripped the stones to build Caernarfon Castle. Remains of Roman baths on nearby site. Both located about 800 yards from town centre on the left hand side of the Waunfawr/Bethgelert road. Under the care bif Cadw, free site entry.
  • A local pointed out that some houses have been built over one end of the visible settlement. It is an awful shame that modern society can't respect these impressive landmarks. I guess one day we'll have flats in Caernarfon Castle. Still, the remaining area is well kept - I didn't go into the facility itself but it all looks and feels Roman. According to one of the lcoals I met they also stole some of the stone to build the castle. That's not the fault of any living person though!
