Grad Predjama

Predjama Castle, Slovenia, digital oil painting by Mary Stebbins Taitt, in artrage. This castle is build into cliffs with caves. It withstood a year-long seige because the residents were able to go
through the caves to a village in the next valley for supplies. Then the Lord was murdered in his bathroom. (I may be remembering two different stories, but if so, they were both from this same castle.)

I like this one very much. It's real and unreal at the same time.
