Criccieth is a town situated on Cardigan Bay in Gwynedd. Criccieth is mentioned in a poem by Robert graves, “Welsh Incident” with the first two lines being: –
“But that was nothing to what things came out
From the sea-caves of Criccieth yonder.”
The castle at Criccieth was built by Llywellyn the Great in the 13th century, but it was added to at later dates. It was seized by Edward I in 1283, but the castle was recaptured by Owain Glyn Dwr in 1404. He had the walls torn down and torched it. The name of the village seems to have come from the name of the castle as in Welsh ‘crug’ means ‘hill’ and ‘caith’ means ‘captives.’ The castle was used as a prison until Owain Glyn Dwr took it. However, Criccieth Castle commands spectacular views and is well worth a visit.
