Castles are a fascinating part of history, a large, hardened structure protecting those on the inside from those on the outside. Rather than being designed from the beginning, many historic castles were constructed in fits and spurts, a new chamber added here, a collection of inner walls there. In this sense “Frankenstein’s castle” could have a double meaning.

But castles are often associated with romance and nostalgia, architectually beautiful and designed down to the pebble. The idealized castles of our collective memory feature lush gardens, ornate decor, magnificent turrets, thick drawbridges, tall towers, encircling moats, and grand courtyards. That sort of “Cinderella castle” might be a bit much for your Sims family, but these real-world castle-based designs can fill your imagination with very down-to-Earth and yet majestic inspiration.
