This village is folly, created entirely by an eccentric Englishman who built every building in a different style with materials sourced from many countries. The tv series The Prisoner was filmed here.

Thanks Fred, I wasa bit surprised as well, this was after all Wales and it rained 9 days out of 12 while we were there.

Good photo - though I admit I prefer the ordinary Welsh scenery to the pseudo - Italian stuff. I like parts of Italy but not in Wales.

I agree entirely David but I am also an admirer of harmless eccentricity.

I really love Portmeirion. It might appear "pseudo Italian" at first glance but look closer and its a real mix of styles with different types of buildings (some "real" ones located to the site , others created from scratch) and its fascinating in its own right. The setting on the estuary is also fantastic. You either like it or love it, I guess. The former for me, the latter for DavidX.

Thanks for the kind comment Wolfie, to appreciate the place you must spend a fair time looking 'beyond' the obvious tacky bits.
