Castillo del Principe / 6 - the entrance
There wasn't a soul in sight. I've seen many fortresses, but this one was special. Not because of its beauty, but it's in no tourist guide, no access to the whole area - except you made peace with the giant watchdogs.....and the security guy who was with them ;-)) Obviously it's a military zone, so we were a little bit anxious and I made only a few photos and we didn't stay too long.

Irre..das ist ja verwunschen und soll wohl auch so bleiben! Die Architektur ist sehr speziell..konnte man schon an den Häusern davor erkennen. Die Zinnen wirken fast maurisch und interessant ist, dass der Eingang zu "meiner" Festung Wülzburg ähnlich ist!

This must once have been a formidable fortress.............and I'm surprised it's been left to fall into disrepair like this.

Two superb images of the fortress Berny..............both nicely composed and captured in great detail. I bet you've have loved to have gone inside to explore..!!

Although it's closed to the public and military area, to our surprise the door was open and we went in, but only for a short roundtour, we were too anxious ;-))

I don't blame you.................you wouldn't want to get locked up in there :-))
