View of the countryside around Dinefwr Castle. The castle is situated approximately 1 mile from Llandeilo and occupies a cliff overlooking the River Tywi. A castle existed here by 1163 and is attributed to Lord Rhys I. The castle was left in ruins in the 15th century when a more modern mansion house was built nearby. The castle was restored in the 18th century as a romantic ruin and tourist attraction with landscaped gardens.
