Pembroke Castle

Pembroke Castle (South Wales) is known mainly for being the birthplace of Henry VII Tudor (1457). Very well preserved, the castle dates back to the Norman times (1093). During its long history it resisted many attacks, that of the Welsh people as well.

Inside the castle there are models from various periods of its existence showing how it changed together with its surrounding. I love such models so I am going to share some photos with them:

From a close distance they look even better:

One of Tudors had been born here, so someone came up with an idea to make an exhibition with a collection of dolls depicting the Tudor monarchs. The dolls belonged to an Ena Taylor.

And for those of you who prefer the real thing – notice the flag (!):

Before my camera broke on one of those towers, I managed to shoot a short movie:
