Castles & Walls

Qal'at Al-Bahrain Site Museum
متحف موقع قاعة البحرين
I am very fond of this postcard sent by Nila (Bahrain). Because it is a beautiful view, of course. But also because it is the first piece of mail I have ever got from Bahrain (a new country to the list!), and also because we arranged this swap thanks to the A to Z April Challenge

Laura sent me this postcard from Burgos, Spain, The Arco de San Esteban ('St Stephen's Arch'), built in the 12th century, is one of the twelve gates on the walls of the old city.

The castle of Guadalest, in my country. The postcard was sent by one of my nieces. She wrote that "it is not a real castle, but mostly ruins".

Kasteel Slangenburg

Two more castles sent by Heleen (the Netherlands).
