Aberystwyth: Old College and Castle

Yr Hen Coleg (Old College), Prifysgol Aberystwyth (Aberystwyth University), was founded in 1872.  In the foreground is Y Tŵr-y-Gogledd (North Tower) of Castell Aberystwyth (Aberystwyth Castell), which was built 1277-1289 under the orders of Edward I.  Today it is in ruins, mainly due to the harsh seaside conditions.
