Garth Celyn, Abergwyngregyn, Gwynedd Llys of Llywelyn Fawr and his descendants certainly deserves consideration. The tower, built circa 1200 saw the births and deaths of royalty of Wales.

Garth Celyn deserves this recognition. There has been new research documenting the importance of this historical treasure. You have asked for suggestions to add to the list and I see a trend in the comments here, all in support of Garth Celyn.
