I'm so amazed at the age of the structures in your country. Makes our 250+ year old buildings seem like new construction!

Would love to walk around inside and outside this castle.

Two beautiful castle posts. Great indoor shots and i am amazed how much light there is inside. One just does not expect that with the thickness of the walls and antiquity of the place. Thank you for bringing it to us to share.
