One of the oldest Romanesque Spanish castles – Castillo de Loarre - was built in the 11th-12th century on the land reconquered from the Muslims. The castle abbey became an important stronghold on the border between Christians and Muslims. It is believed there was a Roman outpost there long before the castle was built. The rocky landscape was a bit of a challenge for the architects. That’s why the castle’s structures are scattered across the area at different elevations and surrounded by a wall to unite them all. This layout was a military advantage. The castle is protected by several curtain walls – the outer one was built in the 14th century, has 8 towers and is 172m long. The 3-floor keep with a basement was built in front of the castle and was linked to it with a wooden bridge. The castle featured in many TV shows and movies like for instance The Kingdom of Heaven by Ridley Scott. Photo by @d_matra 👍😍🙏🏻 . Один из старейших замков Испании, построенных в романском стиле – замок-аббатство Лоарре. Он был сооружен в 11-12в на землях, отвоеванных у мусульман. Таким образом, он стал важным форпостом на границе христианского и мусульманского миров. Считается, что задолго до его постройки на этом месте стоял римский лагерь. Архитекторы во время строительства столкнулись со сложным рельефом, поэтому все строения расположены на разных уровнях. Было сложно, зато с точки зрения обороны великолепно. Замок защищен несколькими рядами стен, наружная стена 14го века имеет 8 башен, а ее длина 172м. Трехэтажный донжон стоит особняком – с замком он был соединен деревянным мостом. Замок довольно телегеничен – он фигурировал во многих телешоу и фильмах, например в «Царстве небесном» Ридли Скотта. . #castillodeloarre #loarre #loarrecastle #castilloloarre #лоарре #instacastle #instacastles #castlesofeurope #spanishcastle #europeancastles #castleonthehill #castlesoftheworld #castlearchitecture #medievalworld #medievalcastle #medievalcastles #medievalfortress #средневековыйзамок #средневековаяархитектура #medievalarchitecture #замкимира #средниевека #средневековье #castillosdeespaña #medievalspain #castlesofinstagram #замкииспании #романскийстиль #romanesquearchite

Have you ever visited a castle? 🏰 And no, Disneyland doesn’t count. If so, what’s your favorite castle you’ve visited? 5 years ago I barely even knew castles still existed. I mean like most kids, you know because you “learn about it” in history but you don’t believe it until you see it and you have no idea that you can actually visit these places. When we moved into our RV back in 2015 I was a freshmen in high school and so my mom decided to spice things up with schoolwork and instead of assigning textbooks and lectures, my geography curriculum for one semester involved planning a gap year📚 I then spent multiple months researching, planning, and then presenting an IMWO (If Money Wasn’t an Object) gap year with a big chunk dedicated to Europe. I had never heard anything about traveling to Europe and with its old streets, ancient castles, and colorful buildings, it seemed incredible to me. Unlike a usual school a project, this project didn’t just educate me but moreover it inspired what would become our big motivator to full time travel. This project inevitably led to us booking one way tickets to Europe and spending 6 months tent/rv camping there⛺️ Up until that project I presented, none of us really knew what the big deal with Europe was. In all fairness none of us ever really looked before. We were vacationers back then and were perfectly happy going to Hawaii over and over again. Then we moved into our RV, a school assignment became a reality, and all of sudden we’re there and we’re exploring ancient castles on a regular basis in Europe. Point being, you don’t really know what’s out there until you see it for yourself. So any time curiosity creeps in, go with it, chase it, run with it, see it to fruition. You’ll never really know how amazing something is until you see it for yourself🙌

The Guadalquivir river in Sevilla has seen a lot come and go since Magellan’s fleet first circled the globe from its waterfront, but one prominent landmark along the banks both then and now is the Torre del Oro. Once a watchtower, it now houses a museum to the city’s unparalleled maritime history.
