The castle ruins stand on the rocky headland, a short distance away and bear testimony to a turbulent past that saw Welsh hopes for independence shattered (see history at a glance). However, today you may peacefully walk around at any time and enjoy the magnificent view it provides of Cardigan Bay. Within the castle grounds is the stone bardic circle erected during the 1916 National Eisteddfod. The 13 stones represent the old counties of Wales.
The Monument situated at Castle Point is a war memorial which shows the angel of peace holding a wreath of victory and humanity rising from the ashes of war. Commissioned in 1919 it is the work of the Italian sculptor Mario Rutelli. The remains of a paddling pool built at the beginning of the century (called Pwll Padarn or Padarn’s Pool) can also be seen off Castle Point.
