Visiting Portmeirion: The Italian style Village in North Wales

I loved visiting Portmeirion in Wales because it's made from a collection of odd bits and architectural fragments, rescued from places all over Europe. It was the brainchild of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis who built it during the period from 1925 to 1975. His daughter Susan is the designer of Portmeirion china.

Portmeirion is a beautiful village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village.

Colourful Portmeirion will make you think that you are in Italy, not North Wales! It's perfect for a fun day trip.
