Capel Curig

 

Capel Curig is a village and community nestled in the middle of the Snowdonia mountains, and on the north-western edge of Conwy county. Like Betws-y-coed, Capel Curig developed as a Mail-coach/Stage-coach hub and a popular centre for hikers and climbers following Thomas Telford’s decision to run this ‘London-Ireland’ road through the village in the 1820s. Even before this, the areas stunning rugged scenery attracted some of Britian’s foremost landscape artists, such as the famous JMW Turner.
