Other Castles

Besides the most famous English, German, Spanish and French castles, almost every other European, Middle Eastern and North African nation built castles of some sort. These were often fortifications that were strengthened so much to be considered as castles. For example, the Portuguese built many castles in their frontier to stop any possible Spanish conquista. So did the Scottish to protect themselves against the English. All in all, medieval history is filled with the construction of many castles. Following is a list of the most famous castles not contained in any other category.
