During the Middle Ages, workers from all walks of life designed and built hundreds of castles—some of them simple wooden buildings, others imposing structures made primarily of stone. Part fortress and part living quarters for the nobles who owned them, these castles were an integral part of the medieval era. They are justly considered today to be among the great architectural achievements in European history.
