It seems that though it is far from the image of a general "castle", it was apparently used to hire a villa or guest rather than what was used for military purposes. Then convinced.

It looks like this from the sky.

An octagonal tower stands at eight corners.

Making the inner wall simple.

The high windows are also decorated.

Atmosphere like church.

High ceiling, open ventilation openings.

I leave the courtyard.

The sky cut into an octagon.
