Tintagel Castle and the legend of King Arthur

Scenes from around Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, England. The English Heritage-managed site and the nearby town long have been associated with the legend of King Arthur and continue to attract tourists. However, efforts by English Heritage to update the visitor experience with the Gallos sculpture, along with a rock carving of Merlin's face, which English Heritage says are inspired by the legend of King Arthur and Tintagel Castle's royal past, have met with criticism from some Cornish nationalists and historians.
