Castell Coch (English translation: Red Castle) is a 19th century Gothic Revival castle built on the remains of a genuine 13th century fortification. It is situated in the village of Tongwynlais, north of Cardiff in Wales. A castle was probably founded on the site in the early thirteenth century by a Welsh chieftain named Ifor Bach. The castle was rebuilt in stone and consisted of a keep, towers, an enclosed courtyard and a gatehouse.
