The Welsh Language and Culture

Welsh is the first language of over a million people, and in the area of Snowdonia, the Llyn Peninsula and the Cambrian Coast around 70% of the population are Welsh speakers. Welsh is one of the oldest living languages in Europe and shares its roots with Breton, Gaelic and Cornish. The sense of community is very strong and Caernarfon's appeal springs from its unique heritage, culture and language, which touches on everyday life, giving this area a truly distinctive character.
