  1. That is a magnificent castle. I have only been to one, The Cloisters in New York City, which is a mediaeval castle run by the Metropolitan Museum. Its unicorn tapestries are a highlight, but I prefer the gardens with their view of the Hudson River. It is quite beautiful. I have only seen European castles in books and film..
