Quick City Overview: Cardiff












City: Cardiff
Region: South Wales
Place: Quick City Overview








The capital of Wales is interesting because it is one of the great centers of modern architecture in the United Kingdom. Most of these modern buildings are concentrated at the Cardiff Bay, with the Senedd (National Assembly) and the Wales Millenium Center as its greatest exponents, which also accompany the reddish palace of Pierhead Building, practically iconic of Wales as a nation in the world. At the same time, within the Downtown it's preserved one of the oldest medieval castles in Europe, erected by the Normans on an old Roman fort. As in many of the British cities, its past was purely industrial (port and mining) and in the last decades it was extensively revitalized.

Cardiff Bay












City: Cardiff
Region: South Wales
Place: Cardiff Bay








Few centuries ago, Cardiff Bay was the world's greatest coal port. During much of the 20th Century, however, the area was abandoned. It was later on, in the last 30 years, that a large masterplan of public and private investment was executed, where it was completely reconverted until it was one of the main points of the tourist map of the city, in which several of the governmental and cultural institutions of Wales are concentrated, among them the gigantic buildings of the Senedd and the Wales Millenium Center.

Yes, I have some pretty good memories from Wales. It's very similar to England though.

Cardiff Castle












City: Cardiff
Region: South Wales
Place: Cardiff Castle








The true origin of the Cardiff Castle was with the conquest of the Roman Empire at the beginning of the first millennium A.D., in what was a fortification within its border in Great Britain. A thousand years later, in the 11th Century, the Normans built the first castle of what would be in the centuries to come a large complex of buildings and defensive towers. For approximately 700 years, between the civil and the successional wars, the place was used as a residence, a jail and a defensive position. The largest expansions were executed between the 18th Century and the 19th Century, with the construction of the new victorian castle next to one of the sides of the walls.

Great to still have a castle so close to the city centre.
