Among the slew of travel photographs that pour into our feed everyday, there is a particular category which always seems to pop out and grab our attention. Castles and fortresses of all types and styles have been built all over the world over many centuries, and as PicsArtists travel, a lot of them end up getting captured on photo and shared. 

Castles and fortresses were not only built for protection, but each one was built as a statement of the royalty living within its walls, and consequently, an immense amount of resources and imagination were funneled into these massive structures. They remain among the most impressive and breath-taking architectural accomplishments known to man, and for this reason they are visual feasts for photographers. 

If you should find yourself near a gorgeous castle, shoot it and tag it with #castle!
