Portmerrion was built by Sir Clough Williams Ellis in two stages: from 1925 to 1939 the site was ‘pegged-out’ and its most distinctive buildings were erected. From 1954-76 he filled in the details. See here .
It is a truly remarkable place with architecture mainly Italian in design, but with lots of quirky additions such as the stone boat in the harbour.

There is a shop selling memorabilia from "The Prisoner" and a shop selling the famous Portmerrion pottery.
So, as you can see it is a beautiful and interesting place to visit, you can walk round for hours and spend lots of money, if the mood takes you.
