Portmeirion's piazza was at one time a tennis court. This pond and fountain makes much more sense. Most of the buildings directly behind it are self catering cottages or hotel rooms . Others to the left side are various village shops. The round pink building at the far left is the unit used for The Prisoners home in the TV series . It now houses a shop selling material related to the series. As I have said before this is one of my favorite places in the world!
