Tintagel is a castle in the Duchy of Cornwall.
Castle Tintagel is built on the peninsula of Tintagel Island - a narrow land-bridge is the only way to reach the castle, the rest of the walls being exposed only to the sea via a cliff-face. This makes it almost impenetrable to hostile forces.

History of the CastleEdit
