Pierrefonds castle, France

It is a Disney castle. It had been fancifully rebuilt in the century that is 19th. Right here’s a picture before that reconstruction: https://victortravelblogdotcom.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/chateau-de-pierrefonds-6.jpg?w=780 … This image with the title of “Pierrefonds castle, France”...

Polignac, France. Surrounded by 100 m (328 ft) high cliffs, Polignac castle dates back to at least the 11th century. This castle is only approachable via a narrow path which was well defended with a triple line of fortifications and (at one time) six gates. I'll post more in the comments.

That pic that is second stunning. Thanks for posting. Your post just brought me to this subreddit; thank you! I have often wondered why a castle or fortification seems to strongly speak so for...

Peyrelade, France. This important Medieval castle had large walls surrounding a unique central keep that was built out of a vertical spire of rock more than 50m (163 ft) high. It was the scene of incessant battles and sieges. I'll post more in the comments (including some model reconstructions).

Puilaurens, France. One of the most dramatically situated castles in Europe, Puilaurens sits on a steep spire of rock high above the Boulzane Valley.

Castelnau-Bretenoux, France. Construction of this "powerful" concentric castle started in 1100. It was was fought over during the Hundred Years' War, as the castle was placed at the frontier between the territories controlled by the Kings of England and France. I'll post more in the comments.

Mothe-Chandeniers, France. Originally built as a stronghold in the 13th century, this castle was greatly renovated over the centuries to become more "livable". It was partially destroyed by a great fire in 1932 when the owner tried to install central heating and has been abandoned ever since.

a pity it might be cheaper to probably build a replica than restore it. Looks pretty awesome a castle that is beautiful. This one should be restored. You are awesome with this material, Hoohill....
