so beautiful... "Tintagel Castle Tintagel is a village situated on the Atlantic coast of Cornwall, in England, UK. These precarious steps that hugged the mountainside around Tintagel Castle, the legendary home of King Arthur, were very treacherous. The mist rolled in from the unforgiving seas and walking on the slate, almost vertical steps, was like stepping onto sheet ice. The steps wound around to a shakey bridge of sorts, for the more intrepid."
