Nice to see. Not expected such sculpture in this location.

The Place around the sculpture could be much better
Catriona Chaplin (8 months ago)
Majestic. Great location, by the water. Through a holiday camp but well signposted.
Benjamin Nyhlén (8 months ago)
Local landmark but not much more. Grab a pizza to go in town and have a snack on one of the benches if you drive thrue town.
Arne Johansson (9 months ago)
It is designed by Picasso specifically for this waterside location by the biggest lake in Sweden.

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.
