2. Lynch's Castle

Show sight on map

Shop Street, located in the high-speed railway city, is a typical Taoist ancient road. This castle has brought us the deepest architectural charm in the late middle-aged and old age, and the blacksmith located in Bigmen Store Street has also been impacted on the self-core of the middle-aged and old town. It is one of the most representative examples of urban housing in the city, and it is also an old Irish building, which is used commercially every day. Unfortunately, we really know the history of the castle is a dwarf who has never recorded who took it out or built it himself. Sure enough, he was a rich member of the Lincks family, and his residence was said to be the residence of Fitz Ambrose of Thomas Lynch, mayor of Cardiff in 1654. Over the 500 years of his existence, the building has undergone many minor changes and reconstructions. The oldest part of the road, the Blacksmith's Road, is an excellent castle-like pangolin, which dates back to 1500 years. At that time, there was a small wing in the western half, and then it rose. In the seventeenth time, it was like there was a wing beside the tower, and new windows were installed in it.
