travel world architecture castles, palaces, and manor houses

I have had the opportunity to visit many different castles, palaces, and manor houses around the world and, like most people, I am fascinated by their history,
both in their architecture and the parts they have played in shaping the world as we know it today.
I have included all three examples of architecture together here because they often share many similar architectural characteristics.
While some of these were more like fortresses and others just personal residences, they often share a common theme of strength, beauty, and utility.
