The history of Carmarthenshire reflects the richness and diversity of the cultural heritage of Wales. A wealth of human and natural heritage is set against beautiful scenery ranging from wide sweeps of beach and sand dunes, through rolling verdant, wooded valleys to high, open mountains. From pre-history to the present day there is so much to see.
Landscape View Over the past decade there has been an increasing awareness of the economic value of our heritage. Many surveys indicate how countryside and culture are important elements in attracting visitors to an area. Furthermore the nature of our landscape and the way we treat it is an important factor in encouraging inward investment. Heritage, culture and landscape are no longer seen as items or activities separate from our daily lives. They are part of the economic fabric and contribute to our sense of place.
