Castle somewhat deteriorated but they are restoring it. It is worth going up and imagining it. Also see the piece of views from there.

Now he was in rehabilitation very well, it seems to me that they will leave him luxurious. I took a look anyway and it's a great, well-preserved castle. I'm happy for the town. Visitable castle 100% when they finish the rehabilitation. Downstairs there is a fountain, a children's playground and a shop/bar, I think or headquarters, I don't know, not between. But the town is very cute and careful.

Castillo de Lanos, better known as Castillo de Ocio for being on a cliff overlooking the council of the same name (Province of Álava, Spain), a medieval fortress belonging to the border line of the old Kingdom of Navarre with Castile, located in a narrow hollow in the valley of the Inglares river. It really performed its function as a component of a group of nearby castles, like its neighbor Portilla. If you want to know more on my YouTube channel Castiaventuras I have the video

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
