There's something rather engaging about castles. I have visited many over the years and have my favourites of course. Warwick Castle has to be at the top of the list of complete castles and then Sandsfoot Castle at Castle Cove in Weymouth is at the top of the ruins list. I spent many a summer running about the beautiful gardens imagining all kinds of battles and adventures! Corfe Castle follows a close second. All of them remind me of childhood vacations and escaping reality.
Now I live in the shadow of another castle, Trikala Fortress and would love to share some of its mystery with you all. The local Council has recently built a brilliant raised walkway all around the hill on which Trikala Fortress is located.
If you want to get a better idea of what you are looking at in terms of the fortress itself, check out my latest translation on Trikala Fortress via Kastrologos at Kastra.eu. If you are a resident or visitor and haven't yet taken the time to investigate please do! The walk affords amazing views of all parts of Trikala and there is a host of wild life to see if you are stealthy and quiet. It makes a lovely, short stroll.
