I have forever been intrigued by castles… imagine a civilization that resided within a castle, either for protection, or for a central marketing hub. They have captured my imagination for years, especially after reading dozens of fantasy novels. So I figure, what is the best kind of inspiration? Examples that have so many stories behind them!
Lucky for me, I was able to goto Europe a few years ago and see a few castles scattered amongst the countryside… some not in the best of conditions, but still they were very thought provoking! Anyways, enjoy the list! Hopefully you guys are as thrilled at the inspiration today as I was!
