French castles are the most beautiful in the world. I can't believe that a thread solely about French castles can have about 1300 replies.

Magnifique.

Do anyone know if it's true that France have the most castles of all countries in Europe?

It may be true. There are tens of thousands of castles, but...

Here is a map showing the location of 1,700 châteaux-forts, the fortified castles, by departement.

Merci beaucoup Charpentier.

Surely that amount beats everything any other European country has to offer. Even Spain which is the second largest Western European country after France.

A castle can hide another.

Sceaux is famous for this castle:
