Domen Las was a Norman castle raised on the site of an earlier Roman fort. Local legend says that Welsh patriot Owain Glyndwr issued orders from the castle during his visit to the village and church in Penal in 1406. Today the castle rests peacefully on private farmland off a small lane leading to the Plas Talgarth resort.

Below: the bailey at Domen Las has faint traces of it's ditch and banks (background).
The corner of the motte is to the left and the town of Penal is in the background.
