Spain - Castles

Let's start. Spain has a great diversity in terms of castles due to its history: moors, romans, christians... The two largest regions are called "Castilla". "Castilla" means "the lands of castles" (Castle= castillo) because of the high number of castles. The spanish language can be also called "Castilian" due to its origin (From castilla).

I don't think he forgot. It is just not possible to post all of the several thousand castles in Spain

The pictures are gorgeous, I hope you will maintain and expand the thread regularly

I was thinking several weeks ago to start a thread in General Photography called Castles of Spain but it seems there is no point to do that now
