Замок Рекесенс - Бриллиант среди замков Каталонии - HDR - Вид с круглой башни
Europe

Probably existing since the 9th century, by some authorities it's dated from the year 844. Was built for Gausfred II Rosello in the lands of Count  Ponç I d'Empúries. The castle is mentioned for the first time in a document from Ponce I, count of Ampurias in the 11th century (1050).

In the 19th century, the ruined castle was rebuilt in a neo-medieval style.

This is one of the most beautiful and picturesque castles I've ever visited. Situated near the French border, in the green valley, Requesens castle will have you captured from the first moment you see it.

Nikon D3000, Samyang 8mm, 3 exposures.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
