Gwynedd - Llanberis

Llanberis is a village in Gwynedd, North Wales, on the southern bank of the lake Llyn Padarn and at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain inWales. It is a popular centre for outdoor activities in Snowdonia, including walking, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking and pony trekking as well as water sports such as Scuba Diving. The international fell race known as the Snowdon Race (Welsh: Ras Yr Wyddfa) to the summit of Snowdon begins in the village.
Llanberis takes its name from Saint Peris, an early Welsh saint. It is twinned with the Italian town of Morbegno in Lombardy.
The village originally grew up around the slate quarrying industry.[3] Since the demise of the quarries in the 1930s, the area has seen a resurgence based on tourism. Another major local employer is Dinorwig Power Station.
The ruins of Dolbadarn Castle, which were famously painted by Richard Wilson and J.M.W. Turner, stand above the village. The 13th century fortress was built by Llywelyn the Great.
