Raglan Castle in south Wales.
Raglan, begun c.1435, is regarded by many as one of the most handsome castles in all of Wales. Raglan also enjoys the distinction of being the last true medieval castle built in Great Britain. As such, the construction of Raglan marked the end of an era in castle-building, as lords and nobles abandoned their castles for the greater comforts of fortified manor houses and estates.
