Castles and Palaces of Europe
Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.
The reader is guided step-by-step through Europe's history. The battles that marked the history of the great empires and kingdoms of Europe, the expansion of Christianity, the Wars of Religion, the French Revolution - throughout the centuries Europe's history has been marked by wars and conquests. These important moments in history are also reflected in the architecture. Centuries of conflicts and wars have left their mark on the landscape. Whether built for defensive purposes or to reflect the power of a ruler, castles and palaces are impressive testimonials of their time. These buildings are brimming over with history and stories that have marked Europe's turbulent history, from the knights of legend, fighting dragons or defending their ladies, to the soldiers fighting in the name of Christ or of their sovereign. This book includes 60 of the most beautiful and most important castles and palaces in Europe. There are over 240 colour illustrations, accompanied by informative background information, historical facts and anecdotes that bring the history of Europe back to life.
