Kasteel de Haar by megalobo Kasteel de Haar by megalobo
Kasteel de Haar is the largest castle in the Netherlands, located near Haarzuilens in the province of Utrecht. It was completely rebuilt in the Gothic style between the late nineteenth and early twentieth century to replace the castle of the same name which was in ruins.
The first evidence of the existence of the castle date back to 1391. Over the years, the castle has been increasingly expanded.
Target of repeated attacks (1482) and disasters (1672), the castle was restored and enlarged at a time, until the last occupant died. Since then, the castle fell into decline, leaving nothing but a ruin.
In 1890, the castle passed into the hands of Baron Etienne van Zuylen van de Haar Nijevelt. He married a French Baroness Hélène de Rothschild, an heir to the Rothschild family. With his help, he could rebuild the castle again. The restoration of the castle which was held from 1892 to 1912, was in charge of the renowned Flemish architect Pierre Cuypers.

Posso está falando besteira, mas esse Castelo parece com um que a seleção ficou hospedada, eu acho. Se não foi a seleção, foi alguém famoso. E sério, parece uma foto de tão perfeito!!

My brother once said that I had more patience than a monk from Tibet, and with a little more practice I could levitate Hehehe, without exaggeration I have to admit, I am a little perfectionist. Thanks dude, for the comment and fav!

Always a pleasure - a word of warning - don't draw at the same time as you're levitating - the results won't be pretty :D
