Chillon II

In the dungeon where the prisoners were kept.

For the geology buffs out there. The castle is built right into the rock.

Imagining what it was like to be a prisoner.

There are a few of these wood pieces left that they used during construction.

Where a prisoner was held captive.

Beautiful photos! Looks like the prisoners had a great view from the dungeon.

What a fun place to explore. I bet it's haunted!

I've an award for you on my blog. If you're interested come over and pick it up :)

Fantastic arches! Isn't amazing the construction feats that were accomplished by our ancestors? Without the benefit of all of today's modern technology? Amazing!!

Jenn: Thanks! Actually, the prisoners were kept where they couldn't see out. One guy practically went insane thinking he was below the water level and might drown (they were chained up down there).

Cheryl: It was a very fun place to explore. You could go practically anywhere in the castle (and we did)!

Chuck: I agree!
