10 Most Amazing Castles from Around the World on Pinterest

We’re trying something new this week.

We’re hoping to make a trip to Europe happen sometime this year. Europe, of course, brings to mind dozens of the best castles in the world.

I’m finding that Pinterest is a great tool for planning trips, and even getting inspiration for great places to visit.

So, in the spirit of sharing some of the beautiful photos we’ve found, and inspiring everyone to travel more, we’re sharing 10 gorgeous photos of castles from around the world.

What do you think? Would you visit any of these castles? Let us know in the comments.

We’ve taken a few liberties here – some of these photos are technically of churches, rather than castles.

    Its Blarney Castle not Blaney. On a good sunny day its gorgeous. You can always go leprachaun hunting in the gardens if its not….

    That is not a picture of Dundas castle. That is Craig E Clair castle in Roscoe NY….. The real Dundas is much larger.

      Thanks Robert. I just made the change. It is known as the Craig-E-Clare however it was built by Ralph Wurts-Dundas in 1924 so calling it the Dundas Castle is still appropriate though obviously it’s not the same as the Dundas Castle in Scotland. Thanks for the note. Surprised no one caught it before today.

    Would have been great to see the Osaka Castle. I visited Japan about 5 years ago…I need to go back. The park is very serene.

    The Eilean Donan Castle looks like something from Games of thrones.

    Thanks for the list.
