Ancient Castles, Forts, and Defensive Structures - EXTERIOR

Challenge has finished
We're looking for EXTERIOR images showing the exterior of Ancient Castles, Forts, and Defensive Structures. Structures in this usage means BUILDINGS of some sort. We are interested in wide views, NOT closeups of specific details. Some of the best structures have had the town build up very closely around them, sometimes to the extent the structure itself is only glimpsed from certain angles. Should this be the case with yours, images presenting the structure and it's surroundings to their best advantage are excellent choices. FOR THIS CHALLENGE, LET'S RESTRICT THE MAIN SUBJECT STRUCTURE TO PRE 1900.
