I Love Castles and Fortresses

For anyone who appreciates the beauty of castles and fortresses 434 People

    Of Course I Do

    Ah yes wandering around old fortresses is lots of fun. The one that I've been to the most is the one on Shark island  a fort converted to a prison then retired and a few ghost stories to go with it I'd really love to visit an old castle but they are in short supply here...

    Very Fortunate Then...

    I love castles and particularly the ruins of castles.  Very fortunate of course that I live in Ireland as that means I am never that far away from one. I have visited a large number of them with my mother, as she loved to do the UK and Ireland trips around them.  Floor...

    A Visit To The South

    A long time ago, over sixty years ago, my family returned to France from Algeria, where they had lived among the indigenous peoples, where they made a life as part of the French colonial establishment, in their smaller way, and first they came as so many did to Marseille. Forty...

    Majesty

    Even in ruins, does that take away from its majesty?

    Within the Walls, I Find Solace

    I can walk the halls of an old fortress, home, or castle and "feel" the people that have been there.  I sense the imprint of the energies of those that have gone before.  I am particularly moved by places where great battles took place.  The very mortar...

    Love A Good Fortress

    I love visiting old forts. Here in the US, there's not much on the castle front, but there are plenty go old forts to visit. One of my favorite places to visit is the old Spanish fortress at St. Augustine, FL - the Castillo de San Marcos. It was the first fortress I ever visited...

    Is this not miraculous? Try to not enjoy the view from your bedroom here and you would need to be placed in a straight jacket.

    Stunning

    I love wandering through the old castles, and some of the Roman fortress remains. It is amazing what those from the past built. Of course there is a fortress of my mind, which I try to keep the drawbridge open to.

    Tintagel Castle, Cornwall

    It's hardly worthy of being called a castle now. What's remaining of the structure is slowly crumbling into the sea. But there is simply something about Tintagel that is absolutely breathtaking.  I can imagine what it must have looked like back in its hay day. Legend has it that...

    If I could have a castle modernized (good heating and good running water being the main concerns) I really would. They're so beautiful. Castles and Fortresses are high on my to-visit list when I travel. They're magnificent. I'm sure even some half destroyed ones would be...
