Amazing Castles of the World


Castle 


A Castle used to be a fortress to keep the royalty from the touch of enemies and traitors. Back to the modern age, Castle is a place for tourists to get a nice background for their photos or to keep some historical objects that are priceless and symbolic.
A castle is a type of fortified structure built in Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages by European nobility. Scholars debate the scope of the word castle, but usually consider it to be the private fortified residence of a lord or noble. This is distinct from a palace, which is not fortified, from a fortress, which was not always a residence for nobility, and from a fortified town, which was a public defence – though there are many similarities among these types of construction.you see the Amazing Castle from Around The World
