Rather interesting Porthmadog facts
Did you know that in 1170 the legendary Prince Madoc is said to have sailed from Borth-y-Gest near Porthmadog on his way to discover America? The story goes that Madoc and one of his brothers gathered fleets which sailed across the Atlantic, landing near what is now Mobile Alabama. Madoc returned to Wales, recruited settlers, and set out again, never to return. Snippets of evidence that could hint at an underlying truth – local stories and some forts inland of Mobile unlike any others of Native American origin – give pause for thought.
