It looks like a castle, if feels like a castle - but is more a 19th century mans imagination of a castle...

Surprising what a bit of man's imagination can do at times. :-)

I don't think that's paint. Looks more like projection mapping.

I just realised that 'light' in this context can be understood differently then I intended. You are absolutely right (I meant light as in projection). As non-native English speaker this is the stuff that happens - many times.... :oops:

Pendennis Castle, the Tudor Castle. When compared with some of the other Henrician forts of the period, Pendennis was a relative simple affair with a single circular Keep surrounded by an outer circular curtain wall.

Pendennis Castle, Nine Gun Battery. This battery was added to the Elizabethan defences in the 1730s (the guns on display are late eighteenth/early nineteenth century versions).

Your English is good drmaxx. Funny and confusing old thing the English language :-) sometimes a sentence or expression can be taken in several ways. I think all of us true 'dyed in the wool' Brits knew what you meant. But did you mean when you used the word light the paint was weightless or illuminatingly projected? Ok, just me being bit of a tw&@.:-)
I wish all our readers a happy and prosperous New Year.

… and last ones. Although I have plenty more.

Each country, or Tongue, was responsible for the own part of the wall. Each had their own Gate into the town too. As a result each section of the wall looks different from the other section. Some more basic and functional while others are more elaborate. There is the inner wall and the other walls too.
