Portmeirion is a resort village on the Welsh coast in Snowdonia.

It was designed and built by architect Sir Brian Clough Williams-Ellis.

The village is a composite of Italian baroque, William Morris Arts and Crafts, and more unusual features.

It was opened in 1926 as a tourist attraction and later as a pottery center.

The village is best known as the setting for the 1960s TV series "The Prisoner", featuring Patrick McGoohan as a British spy undergoing mind alterations, incarceration, disorientation and general weirdness.
