St David's Day might seem like the perfect time to visit Wales' largest castle. But be warned, you might be in for more than you bargained for.
Visitors to Caerphilly Castle will today risk being 'captured' by a four meter long, red and black scaled dragon.
Its arrival marks the launch of Cadw's Historic Adventures campaign, which looks to encourage visitors to Cadw sites during Visit Wales’s Year of Adventure.
The campaign also includes a public screening of the upcoming Wales vs England Six Nations game as well as an after dark 'sleepover' - all to be hosted at Caerphilly Castle over the coming weeks.
The dragon took 15 weeks to sculpt out of fibre glass, weighs one tonne and can blow smoke out of its flaring nostrils.
This terror of Caerphilly is the latest creation from the Cardiff based prop design specialists, Wild Creations.
You might remember one of their earlier creations, the famous 'ball in the wall' which appeared on Cardiff Castle during the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
