Castel de Monte
Just of the coast of Normandy, on a small island, you with find the Mont Saint-Michel. The interesting thing about this castle is the tides. While at high tide the only way to get to Saint-Michel is to either swim or cross the narrow causeway connecting it to the mainland, at low tide one could theoretically walk across the exposed sand bars. A word to the wise however – the tide comes in quickly and numerous visitors have drowned trying to cross.
Translated as “Lion’s Castle” this was the 18th Century version of Disney World. Constructed to intentionally look like an ancient ruin it was destroyed in the Second World War and ironically became exactly that – a ruin. Since then, however, it has been reconstructed and now is a popular tourist attraction.

Anyone who has done even a little bit of traveling knows the drill – if the place you are visiting has a castle, taking an overpriced tour that ends with you being ripped off in an overpriced gift shop is a non-negotiable. Don’t worry though, you’re not the first person to be tortured within the confines of those massive walls, and at least nowadays it involves taking your money rather than your appendages. To spare you the wallet pain, however, our team has scoured the globe in order to bring you 25 awesome castles you should see…on your computer screen.
