The grand staircase is, undoubtedly, one of Portugal's most beautiful.

Castles in Austria are awesome, they're often built on the top of hills or mountains.

I've just finished reading the whole thread (amazing by the way!), but I've seen only one Belgian castle. Let's do something about that!

Bouillon castle (8th-16th century): This castle is most famous as the residence of crusader Godefroy de Bouillon but the castle had a military function until 1830!
