Glimmingehus, Skåne, Sweden
"Glimmingehus, located in Simrishamn Municipality, Skåne County in southern Sweden, is the best preserved medieval castle in Scandinavia. It was built 1499-1506, during an era when Scania formed a vital part of Denmark, and contains many defensive arrangements of the era, such as parapets, false doors and dead-end corridors, 'murder-holes' for pouring boiling pitch over the attackers, moats, drawbridges and various other forms of death traps to surprise trespassers and protect the nobles against peasant uprisings. The lower part of the castle's stone walls are 2.4 meters (94 inches) thick and the upper part 1.8 meters (71 inches)."

The splendor of the Middle Ages
campiglia - Since many archaeological evidence in the municipal area is known to have existed prior appropriations to the Middle Ages.
