NYT: Portmeirion in Wales--Journeys

A Man’s Whim on the Welsh Coast - New York Times: "ALONG an estuary at the northwest tip of Wales, a one-hour hike through a hill town called Portmeirion can lead past a pagoda-shaped chinoiserie gazebo, some Gothic pinnacles, eucalyptus groves, a crenelated castle, a Mediterranean bell tower, a Jacobean town hall, and an Art Deco cylindrical watchtower. And watch your head while you duck through some archways and doors because they are four-fifths of normal scale."

This was the place where the great TV show "The Prisoner" was filmed.
