Parkavonear Castle is said to have been built after the Anglo-Norman invasions in 1169. Rather atypical, it differs from the traditional square towers, and rather has a cylindrical shape spread over 2 floors. Solid, its walls are 2 meters thick.

Nowadays, only the stone parts of the castle remain: thus, the floor and the roof were strongly deteriorated before being removed. You will be able to guess the trace of a staircase running along the cylindrical wall, and which made it possible to connect the 2 floors. The keep itself has been heavily damaged by the centuries.
