A 30-meters high stone tower is the most characteristic building in the Glendalough monastic city.

"There is one monument of antiquity, of more remote date, most probably, than the churches themselves, not yet noticed, although the visiter never loses sight of it during his peregrination through the extensive vale of Glendalough, that is, the Round Tower. The uses of these extraordinary buildings are not yet fully ascertained; by the Irish peasantry they are called Cloch-Theach, or the Belfry; by General Vallancey, Fire-Towers; and by an infinite number of antiquarians, Turres Ecclesiastics, or anchorite towers, either for the study of religious writings, and indulgence in pious reflections, or for the purposes of penitence and prayer, like the Stylite pillars." (George Newenham Wright: A Guide to the County of Wicklow, London 1827).

An autumn evening on the courtyard if the famous Neuschwanstein Castle near Füssen, Germany.

"Neuschwanstein Castle (German: Schloss Neuschwanstein, English: "New Swanstone Castle") is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds. The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then more than 61 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures." (Text from Wikipedia).
