Abergavenny Castle, a former hunting lodge, is also where the exhibits of the Abergavenny Museum are displayed. However, Abergavenny Castle is just one of many historic buildings located throughout this town which was first established as a Roman fort. Raglan Castle is the only castle in Wales where the towers are angular instead of round, and the 13th century White Castle is still only accessible by a footbridge built over a moat.
Abergavenny's location just south of the Black Mountains between the Blorenge and Sugar Loaf Mountains also provides plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. Cycling paths are located throughout the area, Llangorse Lake is a popular sailing spot, and paragliding lessons are available for more adventurous visitors hoping to someday jump off Blorenge Mountain.
