Clough Williams-Ellis built Portmeirion from 1925 to
1975 on his own private peninsula on the coast of Snowdonia in Wales. He
wanted to show that 'the development of a naturally beautiful site need
not lead to its defilement' . The village also has several shops and
restaurants and is surrounded by the Gwyllt sub-tropical gardens and
woodlands and miles of sandy beaches.
