Default To bona: Castle vs palace

Hello Andre,

A castle was the fortified house of someone. The castle was his home and at the same time a fortress. A castle protected the habitants and sometimes the people who lived around it against attacks.

A palace is not intended as a defense and therefore does not have fortified walls. In general a palace is more luxurious than a castle.

Best regards,
Paul
