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. 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.
