When we see places like this in Brazil, we say "Puta que pariu!".

Where is it, by the way? Riviera di Levante?

Sorry, I missed this question! This and other works in Hampton Court are by Italian artist Antonio Verrio. More information on him in the Historic Royal Palaces website, the independent non-for-protif organization that also manages the Tower of London and Kensington Palace.

These are indeed palaces, not castles!
I find Neuschwanstein and Hohenzollern a little tacky, i'm not a fan of the revival style and of XIX century reconstructions, but they are very iconographic, i must say.
I still prefer the older castles and Burgs of Germany!

Italy has such an embarrassment of riches when it comes to architecture that it's starting to get ridiculous. Amazing-looking country.

Here are some castles, palaces and fortified towns from Croatia.


Trakošćan Castle

Trakošćan is a castle located in northern Croatia that dates back to the 13th century.
It has been meticulously maintained and is currently one of the best preserved historic buildings in the country.








Veliki Tabor Castle

Veliki Tabor is a fortress and museum in northwest Croatia, dating from the 12th century. The castle gained its final appearance in the 16th century.




Maruševac Castle

Situated in Ivanec, near Varaždin, northern Croatia.
Castle Maruševac was built somewhere in the beginning of 15th century by a noble Croatian family Vragović.



Varaždin Castle

Varaždin's Old Town, including the castle, is an UNESCO protected site.
Originally built in the 13th century, it was renovated in the 17th century by an Italian architect. The castle is now a museum.




Lužnica Castle near Zaprešić, Zagorje

The village of Lužnica in north Croatia is the location of the Lužnica Castle, a baroque castle and touristic point of interest built in 1791 and owned by the Convent of St. Vincent de Paul.




Motovun, Istra

The medieval town of Motovun in Istra, Croatia.
The mixed oak forest near Motovun, in the fluvial plain of the Mirna river, is one of the best places to find the prized white truffle.




Nehaj, Senj

The Nehaj Fortress is a fortress on the hill Nehaj in the town of Senj on the Adriatic coast of Croatia.
The name Nehaj comes from the Croatian term Ne hajati, which means Don't care.




Trsatska Gradina, Rijeka

Trsatska Gradina is a castle in Trsat, part of the city of Rijeka, Croatia.
It is thought that the castle lies at the exact spot of an ancient Illyrian and Roman fortress. The Croatian noble Vuk Krsto Frankopan is buried in one of the churches.
The Trsat castle was completely reconstructed and renovated in the 19th century when the mausoleum of the military commander Laval Nugent was built in its interior.
The courtyard of the castle has now been turned into a restaurant and many tourists visit the place during the summer months.








Adria Palace (Palača Jadran), Rijeka

This grand old dame occupying prime position on the waterfront is the headquarters of Jadrolinija.
The palace’s exterior is rich in statuary – look out for the figures of a ship’s captain, helmsman, chief engineer and pilot from the dockside,
while from Jadranski trg you can see female figures representing Africa, Asia, Europe and India.




Klis Fortress

The Klis Fortress is a medieval fortress situated above a village bearing the same name, near the city of Split, in central Dalmatia, Croatia.
From its origin as a small stronghold built by the ancient Illyrian tribe Dalmatae, becoming a royal castle that was the seat of many Croatian kings.




Dubrovnik

The Walls of Dubrovnik are a series of defensive stone walls that have surrounded and protected the citizens
of the afterward proclaimed maritime city-state of Dubrovnik situated in southern Croatia.
In 1979, the old city of Dubrovnik, which includes a substantial portion of the old walls of Dubrovnik, joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
