Castles are a good point for permanent resistance. Some castles have been an important symbol for liberation, the introduction of democracy. For example the Hambach Castle, Germany. 1832 the people made their protests vs. the oppression of the Bavarian government. I know some of the architects who had the job, to bring such a symbol “up to date” for modern tourism – without disturbing the old flair.
