This medieval castle is on a promontory hilltop above the Towy Valley, near the more substantial ruins of Dynefwr Castle. It probably dated to the mid-thirteenth century and was previously linked to the Welsh princes and the kingdom of Deheubarth in the 12th century, including Rhys ap Gruffudd. The first known castle consisted of a round tower, ward, curtain wall, and great hall, later known as the King’s Hall. Rhys ap Maredudd added to the castle during his occupation before being executed by the English for treason, and the castle fell into disuse around the fifteenth century.
