Palaces and Castles
“ And if she asks you why, you can tell her that I told you, that I’m tired of castles in the air “Don McLean (I love that song)
Castles and palaces are pieces of the past. They are evocative of the people who lived in them many centuries ago. They are rich in folklore and history and often built with astonishing craftsmanship and innovative design. Here are some of the palaces that I have toured.
