Castle - a large building, typically of the medieval period, fortified against attack with thick walls, battlements, towers, and often a moat.
Aim of this project
This project aims to provide a list of all projects about castles and the people who owned and lived in these castles. The idea is to create projects per country with a list of castles, with their history and stories about the people who build them , owned them or lived in them.
The word castle is derived from the Latin word castellum which is a diminutive of the word castrum, meaning "fortified place". The Old English castel, Old French castel or chastel, French château, Spanish castillo, Italian castello, and a number of words in other languages also derive from castellum.
