My first post in this thread. Congratulations to (almost) all posters for sharing such jewels. I am particulary impressed with romanian and czech castles, which i do not know. Also, there's a lot of awesome castles wich are not well known, such as Hohenzollern Castle in Germany, or Bodian Castle in Kent, England (my personal favorite, this one).

Now let me show one of my spanish favorites, tough not well known at all:


by photographer Ismael Ibańez

Castillo del Buen Amor (literally: The Good Love Castle) was built in 15th Century, although the foundations were part of a former castle from the 11th century. The castle was built with the autorization of John II of Castile and funds from House of Alba. It features some early renaissance influence. The castle had passed from hand to hand several times over the centuries, being held by diverse military, noble and church personalities. Finally, the present owners decide to arrange the castle as a luxury Hotel.


from Siempre en las nubes -a balloon flight operator-

As many others castilian castles, it's surrounded by a dry moat, due to Castile being pretty much a flat land, thus lacking of natural defenssive settings such as hills. It's not quite big, but it has a compact and strong feel that i appreciatte. The cool thing about it is well preserved (although rooms were refurbished at some point), so fortunate guests will experience living in an actual castle:

I guess it's allright. All the city is beyond walls, and you can see the Revelin Fortress by the harbour:

Anyway, this thread it's a bit messy. People add pics and more pics, whitouth any additional information such as history, architectural facts, etc.
