Tintagel is a place full of antiquities and is the headquarters of the “Fellowship of the Knights of the Round Table”.
Tintagel Castle was built by Richard, Earl of Cornwall in the 1230s and was expanded in the Victorian era. The castle is located on the peninsula of Tintagel Island adjacent to the village of Tintagel (Trevena), North Cornwall, in the United Kingdom.
Gallos, 8-foot-tall bronze sculpture located at Tintagel Castle, which is a medieval fortification located on the peninsula of Tintagel, is located at Tintagel Castle, was commissioned by English Heritage from the sculptor Rubin Eynon. It took six months to design, sculpt, and cast the statue, which was completed in 2016.
The sculpture portrays a figure 8 ft (2.4 m) tall in a cloak, resting on a sword and wearing a crown. The statue is inspired by the legend of King Arthur and the Lords of Cornwall.
Despite being commonly known as the “King Arthur Statue,” English Heritage states that it is not meant to represent a single person and reflects the general history of the site.

The castle itself was constructed by Richard, Earl of Cornwall in the 1230s, and it was expanded in the Victorian era.

Gallos overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.
The sculpture has a sword in one hand and a shield in the other, and it stands on a plinth with the inscription “Gallos”,
