Entonces que corrijan los libros de historia?


Aqui un pedazo de los tantos articulos que se pueden encontrar en la red simplemente escribiendo en google "castillo de la habana":




El Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro and La Fortaleza San Carlos de la Cabana are located across the bay of Havana. From La Habana Vieja, you can easily take a taxi to get through the tunnel. Built in 1763, the Fortaleza is a great place to go when you feel like getting away from the bustling city to walk around and enjoy the view of Havana from across the bay and perhaps get something to eat at one of the restaurants located inside the walls of the fortress. From the Fortaleza, you can easily walk to the Castillo. The main attraction of the Castillo is the lighthouse that was build in 1845 and is still in operation today. Visitors are allowed to climb up to the top of the lighthouse to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view. If you know a bit of Spanish you can talk with the lighthouse keeper who'll explain how the lighthouse works. I've been in many lighthouses before but it was my first time going into one that isn't fully automated so I really enjoyed my visit.

Chateau de Fontainebleau | Fontainebleau, France





Originally Posted by Wikipedia


The Royal Château of Fontainebleau (in the Seine-et-Marne département), the largest of the French royal châteaux, introduced to France the Italian Mannerist style in interior decoration and in gardens, and transformed them in the translation. The French Mannerist style of interior decoration of the 16th century is known as the "Fontainebleau style:" it combined sculpture, metalwork, painting, stucco and woodwork, and outdoors the patterned garden parterre. The Fontainebleau style combined allegorical paintings in molded plasterwork where the framing was treated as if it were leather or paper, slashed and rolled into scrolls and combined with arabesques and grotesques. Fontainbleau ideals of female beauty are Mannerist: a small neat head on a long neck, exaggeratedly long torso and limbs, small high breasts — almost a return to Late Gothic beauties. The new works at Fontainebleau were recorded in refined and detailed engravings that circulated among connoisseurs and artists. Through the engravings by the "Fontainebleau school" this new style was transmitted to other northern European centers, Antwerp especially, and Germany, and eventually London. The château as it is today is the work of many monarchs, building on a structure of François I. The building is ranged round a series of courts.

The city of Fontainebleau has grown up around the remainder of the "Forest of Fontainebleau," a former royal hunting park.

The older château on this site was already used in the latter part of the 12th century by Louis VII, for whom Thomas à Becket consecrated the chapel. Fontainebleau was a favourite residence of Philip Augustus and Louis IX. The creator of the present edifice was François I, under whom the architect Gilles le Breton erected most of the buildings of the Cour Ovale, including the Porte Dorée, its southern entrance. The king also invited the architect Sebastiano Serlio to France, and Leonardo da Vinci.

The "Gallery of Francis I", with its frescoes framed in stucco by Rosso Fiorentino between 1522 and 1540, was the first great decorated gallery built in France. Broadly speaking, at Fontainebleau the Renaissance was introduced to France. The Salle des Fêtes, in the reign of Henri II, was decorated by the Italian Mannerist painters, Francesco Primaticcio and Niccolo dell’ Abbate. Benvenuto Cellini's "Nymph of Fontainebleau," commissioned for the château, is at the Louvre.

Another campaign of extensive construction was undertaken by King Henri II and Catherine de' Medici, who commissioned architects Philibert Delorme and Jean Bullant.

To the Fontainebleau of François I and Henri II, King Henri IV added the Court that carries his name, the Cour des Princes, with the adjoining Galerie de Diane de Poitiers and the Galerie des Cerfs, used as a library. A "second school of Fontainebleau" decorators, less ambitious and original than the first, evolved from these additional projects. Henri IV pierced the wooded park with a 1200m canal (which can be fished today) and ordered the planting of pines, elms and fruit trees.

Three hundred years later the château had fallen into disrepair and during the French Revolution many of the original furnishings were stolen. What remained were sold, in the long Revolutionary sales of the contents of all the Royal châteaux, intended as a way of raising money for the nation and ensuring that the Bourbons could not return to their comforts. Nevertheless, within a decade Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, began to transform the Château de Fontainebleau into a symbol of his grandeur, as an alternative to empty Versailles, with its Bourbon connotations. At Fontainebleau Napoleon bade farewell to his Old Guard and went into exile in 1814. With modifications of the château's structure, including the cobblestone entrance wide enough for his carriage, Napoleon helped make the château the place that visitors see today. Fontainebleau was the setting of the Second Empire court of his nephew Napoleon III.

Philip the Fair, Henry III and Louis XIII were all born in the palace, and the first of these kings died there. Christina of Sweden lived there for years, following her abdication in 1654. In 1685 Fontainebleau saw the signing of the Edict of Fontainebleau, which revoked the Edict of Nantes (1598). Royal guests of the Bourbon kings were housed at Fontainebleau: Peter the Great of Russia and Christian VII of Denmark, and so, under Napoleon was Pope Pius VII — in 1804 when he came to consecrate the emperor Napoleon, and in 1812—1814, when he was Napoleon's prisoner.

Chateau de Montaigne
Bordeaux, France




From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Château de Montaigne is a castle situated on the borders of Périgord and Bordelais, near Bergerac and Saint-Émilion, in the small commune of Saint-Michel-de-Montaigne in the Dordogne département of France. This fortified castle dates to the 14th century and was the family residence of the renaissance philosopher and thinker Michel de Montaigne.


History

Built in the heart of a majestic park, whose layout was designed by the philosopher himself, the residence was acquired in 1477 by the great-grandfather of Michel, Ramon Eyquem, a Bordeaux trader, who thus acquired the hereditary title of Lord Montaigne.

Michel's father, Pierre Eyquem, settled in the castle with his family, and there Michel spent a studious childhood—he is said to have spoken Latin at the age of seven—before leaving to continue his studies at the college of Guyenne in Bordeaux.
In 1584, Montaigne entertained in his castle the king of Navarre, Henri de Bourbon, the future Henri IV, and thus became a close royal friend at the same time as Condé, de Rohan and Turenne. Henri IV had already named him gentleman of the chamber (French: gentilhomme de sa chambre) by a patent letter of 1577.
From 1571 until his death in 1592, Michel de Montaigne wrote his famous Essays (French: Essais), major works of humanism of the renaissance, and fruits of a lifetime of reflection and reading.

After his death, the widow Françoise de La Chassaigne continued to reside in the castle. She entertained there Marie de Gournay, whom she had befriended in 1588 during a voyage to Paris, and to whom she had sent an annotated copy of the Essays requesting that she take care of its publication (which didn't happen until fifteen months later).

In 1860, Pierre Magne, minister of Napoleon III, bought the castle. He withdrew there after the 16 May 1877 crisis and became generally distant from the meetings of the Senate. He died of disease on February 17, 1879.
The castle was completely restored after a fire that seriously damaged it in 1885.


Architecture

The architecture has a neo-renaissance flavour. After crossing the gate, one arrives in a square court surrounded by ramparts. The round tower of the library is the only vestige of the 16th century and is a popular location for visitors of the castle. It is said that Michel de Montaigne composed his Essays here. Many of his reflections are engraved in the roof-beams of the library in letters of fire (French: lettres de feu).
Since 1952, Château de Montaigne has been listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.

El castillo de Vaduz:

Schloss Vaduz (German for "Vaduz Castle") is the official residence of the Prince of Liechtenstein. The Palace is named after the town Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, which it overlooks from an adjacent hilltop.

The earliest mention of the castle can be found in the deed of the Count Rudolf von Werdenberg-Sargans for a sale to Ulrich von Matsch. The then owners - presumably also the builders - were the Counts of Werdenberg-Sargans.

The Bergfried (12th century) and parts of the east-side are the oldest. The tower stands upon a piece of ground of about 12 x 13 m and has a wall density on the ground floor of up to 4 metres. The original entrance lay at the Hofzijde at an 11 meter height. The chapel St. Anna was presumably built in the Middle Ages as well. The main altar is late-gothic. In the Schwabenwar of 1499 the castle burned by the honorbound of Switzerland. The west-side was expanded on by Count Kaspar van Hohenems (1613-1640).

Since 1712 the castle is property of the royals of Liechtenstein. Under the rule of Johannes II (1840-1929) the castle was restored from 1905 to 192. It was later expanded to use as a home by Franz Joseph II (1906-1989).

Since 1938 the castle is the primary residence of the Royal Family. The castle can not be visited by tourists.

-----------------

Lo cierto es que en Europa hay miles (literalmente) de castillos, palacios y palacetes así que es imposible ponerlos todos aquí :/ por cierto que el castillo de Neuschwanstein es un poco falso, fue construido en el siglo XIX y su aspecto de castillo de cuento de hadas es tal porque así lo quiso un rey de Bavaria muy aficionado a la construcción de edificos varios. Muchos de los castillos bien conservados son reconstrucciones también muy tardías, pero por lo menos tienen algo de historia.

Otro castillo, el de Hohenzollern, en Alemania (ni las fotos de antes ni estas son mías, tengo fotos pero me da pereza escanearlas, ya que son de aquella época cuando todavía el uso de cámaras digitales no estaba muy extendido :P)
