Where am I? In the village

Am I in Italy? This is Portmeirion, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis's Italianate folly near Porthmadog. It was here that cult 1960s TV series 'The Prisoner' was shot. We were lucky to visit on a blue-sky day when the strong sunlight creates a truly Mediterranean feel to the place. Click here for link to video directed by Nick Morris for pop group The Times, shot at Portmeirion.

The day was sufficiently beautiful for me to take hundreds of photographs that do justice to this splendid folly. Below: View of the village from the estuary of the River Dwyryd. In the lower centre of the picture is the Stone Boat, a famous Portmeirion landmark.
