Castle and Fortress Pictures

< Return to Picture Categories menu. >

! Preliminary ! I plan to add more photos.

I was motivated to collect photos of castles after seeing some stunning castles during television broadcasts of the 2006 Tour de France. It reminded me of some of the interesting castles that I saw in France during a couple of trips to Europe in the 1960's and 1970's.

This is a preliminary collection. I am still looking for images of some of the castles that I have seen --- on the Tour de France TV shows or personally.

Castles and fortresses are an endangered species. There is no requirement for them anymore. So I would like to preserve images of them here --- just in case wars and natural disasters wipe out more of them.

Most of the pictures below are presented in a small size (150 pixels high or thereabout) --- with a link to a larger size (800x500 or 400x600 or thereabout).

The larger sizes are shown in a separate window. Close (or minimize) the separate window(s) to access this window again.
