Klågerup Castle

Klågerup, Sweden

The history of Klågerup estate dates from the early 15th century, when it was owned by Peter Spoldener and his son. In the 18th century buildings were in bad shape and in 1737 Fredrik Trolle started an extensive restoration. The present main building got its appearance in 1858, when it was rebuilt to the French Renaissance style by architect Helgo Zettervall. Klågerup was a center of local peasant riots in 1811. The rebellion was defeated however in few days. Today there is a small doll museum in the wing of Klågerup castle. It is open by appointment only.

Peasants revolt. They don't riot. Typical bourgeois jargon. I finally saw the excellent musical 1811 by Rolf Hellmark and Lars Johansson and left flowers at the monument in June of 2011. We will always remember MÃ¥rten Bengtsson who made the supreme sacrifice.

Härliga promenader i välskött park och ett stort plus att de öppnat upp promenadvägar nära slottet. Fint året runt.

Trevlig slottspark att promenera i med både blommor och bin och en liten vattenpöl med grodor och ankor. Trevlig ljudkuliss med bräkande får, råmande kossor och kvittrande fåglar. Lagom liten utflykt en lat söndag.

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
