The island of Gotland has many stone labyrinths, but the most famous is Trojaborg in Visby. It may have its origins in a pagan cult, but in more recent times it has been used for games and festivities.

En urgammal labyrint norr om Visby lasarett. Liknande trojaborgar finns på många platser, både i Sverige och andra länder och kontinenter. Se Wikipedia för mer info. Sommaren 2018 är Trojaborg utgångspunkten för en konstorientering på drygt 2 kilometer med 10 konstverk utplacerade i naturen. Följ kartan noga och undersök terrängen. Skanna QR-koden på kartan för lite tips om vad du letar efter. Inte handikappvänlig och passar inte för barnvagn och liknande. Barn som gillar att klättra och undersöka kommer att ha kul.

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.
