A pair of enormous Welsh Dragons have marked St David’s Day with a flying visit to Caernarfon Castle.
The colossal creatures, complete with their reptilian scales, sharp claws and piercing black eyes, have been spotted in a romantic embrace — or “cwtch” in Welsh — on Caernarfon’s Town Square, with the castle walls looming in the background.
The Dragons’ arrival marks the launch of the Cadw's Live the Legends campaign, which will bring Wales’s dramatic history to life during Visit Wales’s 2017 Year of Legends.
Dragons feature in many of Wales’s great myths and folklores, and the Cadw Dragons (Dewi and Dwynwen) have been named after St David and St Dwynwen — two of Wales’s most renowned patron saints, made legendary for their selfless deeds in ancient Wales.
