Brecon - South WalesBrecon lies in the preserved county of Powys, a large county in central and east Wales covering the former administrative counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire, most of Brecknockshire and a small part of Denbighshire. It is a mountainous county making north-south transportation by car quite difficult, however its main attraction is the variety of breath-taking scenery with rolling hills and rugged mountains, spectacular passes, gentle valleys and dense forests. Its main towns include Brecon, Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells, Llanidloes, Machynlleth, Newtown and Welshpool.
