It's a good place to check out castle, if you wish to know more about castles or visit them. There is a list of the top 100 medieval castles in the world. The castles have general statistics. I'd say that the most important statistics are the country, era, founder of the castle, region, castle type and condition. There are a lot of pictures and postcards of beautiful and marvelous castles. I have visited some of them myself, and they definitely look different in person. Some of them are much grander than in the pictures. To tell you the truth, some of the castles that I've visited weren't easy to tour inside, because of the steep steps, but it was worth it.
The castles above from bottom to top are:
1) Krak des Chevaliers (Kalat el Hösn), Homs, Syria
2) Kasteel Medemblik (Radboud), Medemblik, Netherlands
3) Slot Loevestein, Woudrichem, Netherlands
4) Muiderslot, Muiden, Netherlands
