Laugharne Castle




Laugharne Castle is a castle in the town of Laugharne in Carmarthenshire, Wales. It is located on the estuary of the River T�f.

The castle was built by the Normans after 1100 as part of their invasion of Wales. It was seized by Rhys ap Gruffydd in 1189. It was rebuilt in stone by the Anglo-Norman de Brian family during the later thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries. Sir John Perrot later transformed it into a Tudor mansion in the sixteenth century.
