LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERYCHWYRNDROBWLL-LLANDYSILIOGOGOGOCH is actually a town in Wales that claims to be the longest name in Britain. However, this photo was taken in a park of the same name in Lake Crystal, Minnesota. The name is Welsh for "St Mary's church in the hollow of the white hazel near to the rapid whirlpool and the church of St Tysilio of the red cave". (source wikipedia.org). The Wikipedia link below has some really good information about this place as well as an audio link for the correct pronuciation. Good luck!
