    Woman Shares Her Joys And Difficulties Of Living In A 1482 Medieval Castle

    In the Middle Ages, castles were usually fortified buildings meant to survive enemies’ attacks. They were built for royal and noble families to not only be safe but to reside in too. Often, castles were miniature towns with servants doing the chores, soldiers guarding the castle, and extended family living under the same roof.

    Nowadays, we are used to seeing castles that are turned into museums. We can visit them and see how people lived centuries ago, what art they liked, how they decorated the interior, what their daily life looked like. But there are also people who own castles and live in them or rent them to other people.
