French Castle

You probably know the Bastille, a famous fortress-prison in Paris:



It was destroyed during the revolution of the end of XVIII century.



But there is a historical Bastille with the same plan in Iran which is larger and taller than the original one, that is Château de Suse, it was constructed by Jean-Marie Jacques de Morgan.
