A true medieval castle. I can only imagine living inside her back in the day. Surrounded by cliffs and forest it must have been a beast to construct, as well. I’m sure one of the reasons it’s still here in such good shape is its natural defensive locale. It seems out of the loop even for todays standards. Was it worth fighting for? Maybe no one of any significant prominence lived here. Hard to believe, though, given such a massive and incredible building.
