Literally translated into English as Castle of the City of Crows.

I was visiting friends on a boat on the Llangollen canal in north Wales this summer and a group of us walked up to the nearby Castell Dinas Bran for a barbeque one evening. After taking some photographs and eating our food we found ourselves being enshrouded by cloud. Then, out of the mists, came a magesterial old golden retriever (probably from a local farm) who sat by us. As we realised the light was fast fading we promptly made a determined but steady descent.

Wikipedia has more info on the history and myth surrounding the castle.
