Llanrwst (meaning "church or parish of Saint Grwst"; ) is a small market village and community on the A470 road and the River Conwy, in Conwy County Borough, Wales. The village developed around the wool trade, but also became renowned for harp and clock manufacture. Today, lying on the edge of Snowdonia (Snowdonia starts about away on the other side of the river Conwy), its main industry is tourism. Notable buildings in Llanrwst include the almshouses, two 17th-century chapels and the Parish Church of St Grwst, which holds the stone coffin of Llywelyn the Great. In the 2011 census the population of the village was 3,323.
