Just a footnote.... a few palaces are neither royal nor ecclesiastical, such as Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire England (built for the Duke of Marlboro on his victory against Louis XIV at Blenheim in Bavaria).... and also Vienna's Upper and Lower Belvedere Palace (built for Prince Eugene of Savoy in his victory over the Turks).

These palace were built for generals.

The multi-floor ramp rather than stairs is stunning.

Stegeborg Castle Ruin


Stegeborg Castle is a ruined castle, located on an island in a narrow sound at a bay.

The oldest part of the castle is a square brick tower in the southeast corner, built in the early 13th century.

During the 16th and 17th centuries the building was further expanded, especially during the reign of Johan III of Sweden, when the round tower attained its present height.

I was here 2 days ago. Admission is 40SEK. You can enter the tower and watch a small exhibition.
