Since I cannot become even crazier than I am now ( if so and so much I am : am I ? ) I renounce to post any picture of some italian castles I would have liked to show you , but at least I post this facebook link of a group about italian castles and fortresses : http://www.facebook.com/pages/CASTEL...a/308856780344 .

I dont ' know if there are pics of them in that fb page , anyway I indicate castel toblino and castel tirolo ( Trentino - alto adige / sud tirol ) castiglion della pescaia - that is a village on the sea with its castle on the hill - and castello di montepò ( both are in maremma toscana , southern Toscany , Grosseto ) castello di belgioioso ( Lombardy , Pavia , about 25 km . south of Milan ) castello di moncalieri ( Piedmont , village with castle in Turin outskirts ) .

Interesting topic, and really great castle collection, but i vote for Castle Hohenzollern, it is too cool and located awesome place. this is castle located 30 mile from south of Stuttgart in Germany. and it was constructed in the 11th century. but it is really amazing construction.
