Portmeirion is a small tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales. It was designed and built by architect Clough Williams-Ellis in the style of an Italian village and to prove that a development
could be built in a beautiful area without spoiling it.
The village was constructed between 1925-75 and all of the buildings on site are Grade I or Grade II Listed structures.
The site is located on the estuary of the River Dwyryd in the community of Penrhyndeudraeth.
It has also been used as a filming location for a number of telvision shows and films, most famously "The Prisoner" in the 1960s.
