The 50 Greatest Castles and Palaces of the World Paperback / softback

Part of the The 50 series

Description

Castles and palaces around the world are structures of grandeur, might and beauty.

From the flamboyance of Germany's fairy tale-Neuschwanstein Castle to the gothic, Dracula-inspiring Bran Castle, perched high in the craggy peaks of Romania's Carpathian Mountains; Tokyo's Imperial Palace, previously home to samurai warriors to Ireland's Blarney Castle, where `the gift of the gab' will be granted to any who kiss its stone, the world's castles and palaces are steeped in history and stories to tell.

Travel writer and journalist Gilly Pickup shares these stories, providing a tour of 50 of the world's greatest castles and palaces, filled with humour, interesting facts and tips on how best to visit them.
