Krak des Chevaliers in Syria near Homs was crusaders’ largest stronghold in the Holy Land. Back in the 11th century it was a Kurdish fortress that was seized by Europeans on crusade. It was actually captured by them several times and finally handed over to the Knights Hospitaller who totally rebuilt it and made it a mighty base. The castle was protected by thick walls with watch towers. Since it was a spur castle it had a lot of rooms hidden inside the rock. The fortress was captured by jihadists during the Syrian civil war but luckily it was retaken by the Syrians army with minimal damage. Photo courtesy @tomashlavac 👍👍🙏🏻😍😍 . Замок Крак де Шевалье в Сирии недалеко от города Хомс был во времена Крестовых походов самой большой базой крестоносцев в Святой Земле. В 11 веке в нем квартировал курдский гарнизон, который сдал крепость европейцам. Крестоносцы захватывали ее несколько раз, в конце концов, передав ее в руки рыцарей-госпитальеров, которые его основательно перестроили. Замок был надежно защищен толстыми стенами и дозорными башнями, а поскольку он был построен на скале с учетом рельефа, многие помещения были расположены в самой скале, что помогало осажденным при осаде. Во время гражданской войны в Сирии замок был захвачен джихадистами, но сирийские военные сумели выбить их, нанеся ему минимальный урон. . #krakdeschevaliers #кракдешевалье #instacastles #moyenage #medievaltimes #medievalcastle #medievaleurope #ближнийвосток #medievalarchitecture #medievalfortress #middleages #замкимира #castlesofeurope #средниевека #средневековье #средневековыйзамок #castlesofinstagram #средневековаякрепость #средневековаяархитектура #castlearchitecture #castleonthehill #castellomedievale #instacastle #syriancastles #сирия #middleeasttravel #knightshospitaller #госпитальеры

The Rhine River area of Germany has been an important trade route for centuries. Castles once controlling the land and commerce now watch over vineyards, cruise ships, and tourists. First is Burg Pfalzgrafenstein sitting in the middle of the Rhine, which once used long chains to the shores to exact tolls on passing boats. Next is Burg Eltz between the Rhine and Moselle Rivers, owned by the same family branch since the 1200s. Neither castle was conquered due to strategic location or marriages! #burgpfalzgrafenstein, #burgeltz, #burgeltzcastle, #eltzcastle, #rhineriver, #rhinerivercruise, #riverrhine, #castles, #instacastle, #castlesofinstagram, #castlesofgermany, #rhinecastles, #castlelovers, #travelgermany, #deutschland, #germanytourism, #germanytravel, #bestofgermany, #travel, #travelpic, #travelphotography, #canon, #canon📷, #lumix, #lumix📷, #corelpaintshoppro

Lavoûte-Polignac castle, France. Is a castle located in Lavoûte-sur-Loire, in the Haute-Loire department, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. It was the favorite residence of the family of Polignac, a very old French family whose genealogy can be traced by probable filiations until the end of the 9th century. ____________________________________________________________ #castle #castles #castle🏰 #castlesoffrance #frenchcastle #frenchcastles #castlesofeurope #europeancastles #castlesoftheworld #castles_oftheworld #castlesofinstagram #instacastle #royalcastle #palace #palaces #palacesoftheworld #europeanroyalpalaces #royalpalace #pictures #photography #photograph #hdpic #france #france🇫🇷 #monarchy #medieval #medievalcastle #castlefield #castlephotography #ancientcastle

Castillo de la Mota. De vuelta de Valladolid, con una tarde lluviosa, no pude resistir la tentación de acercarme a este histórico castillo muy vinculado al Reino de Castilla. Era una gran fortaleza artillada del siglo XV, con sus elementos clásicos: foso, murallas, torre de homenaje.... imponente. La Mota Castle. Returning from Valladolid, a rainy afternoon, I could not resist the temptation to approach this historic castle closely linked to the Kingdom of Castilia. It was a great artillery fortress of the fifteenth century, with its classic elements: moat, walls, tribute tower .... imposing. ____________________ #castillayleon #ok_castillaleon #medinadelcampo #estaes_castillaleon #castilla #castles #castles_oftheworld #total_castillayleon #valladolid #loves_castillayleon #estaes_valladolid #total_valladolid #igersvalladolid #castillayleón #castillos #lamota #spanishcastle #castillodelamota #fortalezas #medievalcastle #ok_valladolid #castillosdeespaña #instacastle #castlesofinstagram
