Exactly... But in fact I think those aren't natural forests (there are a lot of pines).. The rich people who built these mansions were always looking at Europe and liked everything that came from there (for example, they didn't like Tango until it became famous in Europe )

Trully impressive! Of course some are copies of famous european castles/palaces, I think I see a part of Chambord in one of them..., but still... impressive works of architecture!

he Castle of Garcia D'Ávila, in Praia do Forte, the northern coast of Bahia, was started in 1551 and completed in 1624. Its ruins are among the oldest in Brazil. Garcia D'Avila arrived in Brazil in the expedition of Thomas de Souza, in 1549, being named the overseer and tax collector of the city of Salvador and Customs.

This is the only feudal castle of america.

You´re wrong. Brazil had palaces because it was the only country that was a empire after independency, and we cant forget that Brazil was part of Prtugual and Rio de Janeiro was the capital of all kingdom

Please, just post castles in Argentina.

PS: There is a very well-known castle, from the "Guerrero familiy", at the 100Km of the Ruta2. I dont know if you have already posted it. Its small, but beautiful.
