There is a prehistoric axe factory on Penmaenmawr Mountain. Another tourist attraction is the 'Druid's Circle', which has no associations with the ancient Druids, but is the remains of two bronze age stone circles. Within the circle archeologists found a food vessel and the cremated remains of a child, possibly evidence of human sacrifice. Neo - druidic ceremonies are occasionally still carried out here.
