Very "vanilla" descriptions of these castles, I would say. We know, for a fact, that castles have torture chambers and I didn't see one single description of any of this. So we're missing a lot here.

After a while, it's moat--or no moat, walls or no walls, pastures or no pastures, windows or no windows. They're still miraculous and have withstood the tyranny of time.
