A Word A Week Photo Challenge – Castle

You make kingdoms and castles on your own. /S.Jenkins/ 


The Halászbástya or Fisherman’s Bastion in Budapest, Hungary – designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. This is one of the towers of the Bastion that to me looks like a small castle itself.


Turaidas pils or Turaida Castle – a medieval castle built in 1214 according to directions given by Albert, archibishop of Riga. Sigulda, Latvia


Царевец or Tsarevets is a medieval fortress located in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. The construction of the Bulgarian stronghold was begun in 12th century.


Looks like a castle, doesn’ t it? Torre de Belém or Belém Tower – built by order of the King Dom Manuel I, between 1514 and 1520. Lisbon, Portugal


Palácio Nacional da Penathe Pena National Palace represents one of the best expressions in the world of 19th-century architectural Romanticism. Sintra, Portugal

Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. /H.D.Thoreau/

  1. those are beautiful places to visit, my favorite is Lisbon along the bay, it stands proudly

    I would like to invite you to join us for Travel Photo Mondays, the link runs the whole week so I hope you can join us?


  2. Very well captured these photos with lot of atmosphere – I believe they are much more charming and inspiring now than at the time they were built – especially the dungeon…. 🙂 😉

    The last quote (H.D.Thoreau) in my eyes a very wise one… 🙂
