Most people know of Tintagel. Many people consider it the birthplace of King Arthur. Others visit Tintagel village and the Castle in the full knowledge that the present structures are largely Norman - built in the 11th and 12th centuries. It is believed that the fortress of Tintagel dates from the time of Reginald, Earl of Cornwall (1140 to 1175) although few argue that there are some buildings dating from the 6th Century. The ruined monastery is thought to date from 500AD. There are enough unanswered questions to still provide most visitors with a sense of mystery.
