Caerhun is a village and rural community (and former civil parish) on the west bank of the River Conwy, to the south of Hendry and to the north of Dolgarrog, in the Conwy County Borough of North Wales.

Around the 14th century parish church of St Mary are the banks of the Roman fort of Canovium. The church and its churchyard occupy the north-east quarter of the original Roman site. Canovium was built at an ancient river crossing and was an important post on the Roman road and ancient drovers road via Bwlch-y-Ddeufaen to Abergwyngregyn and the Menai Strait. Latterly the best crossing point, now with a bridge, has been at near-by Tal-y-cafn. After the Roman departure from Britain, the fort was associated with King Rhun Hir of Gwynedd, hence the subsequent name.
