Castell Coch is a 19th-century castle situated near Cardiff, Wales. A wealthy man inherited the old castle in the 19th century and ordered architect William Burges to construct him a new castle which would be used as a summer residence. The castle was built in a Gothic Revival style, with three stone towers. The castle is built in a wooded area. The castle is owned by the state and is looked after by the Welsh Heritage group.
