    Here's the largest castles ever built by the beachling/beach dweller culture in the anchient, pre-Trump era of North America:

    US govt official: “You have observed the white man for 90 years. You’ve seen his wars and his technological advances. You’ve seen his progess, and the damage he’s done.”

    Two Eagles: “When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women do all the work, medicine man free, Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing, all night having sex.... Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.”

    A really tall one, amazingly steep

    It was beaten by this one, made American sand castles great again:

    Which in turn was beaten by this one, which isn't very steep, though. It is massive, and it is the biggest, but it is not as impressive as the two previous ones, in my opinion, because it doesn't have to fight gravity in the same way the others do. Still, it was a huge undertaking, no doubt.

    I can see lots of palaces mentioned here, so, one close to my hometown.

    Finckenstein Palace (German: Schloss Finckenstein) was a baroque palace, designed by the architect John von Collas between 1716 and 1720 in the former West Prussia, about 25 mi. (40 km) south of Elbląg in present-day Poland. It was built by Prussian Field Marshal, Marquess, and Count Albrecht Konrad Reinhold Finck von Finckenstein and remained in the possession of the Finck von Finckenstein family until 1782.[1] After that the Counts Dohna-Schlobitten lived in it until 1945. Red Army soldiers set the palace on fire January 22, 1945, during their conquest of East Prussia.[2] The ruins are still visible.

    The palace became famous in 1807, when Napoleon made it his residence from April through June of that year. When he saw the palace for the first time, he said:Enfin un chateau ("Finally, a castle").[3] The Treaty of Finckenstein between France and Persia was signed here.[3] Here, Napoleon met his mistress Maria Walewska, with whom he lived in the palace.[3] The Hollywood movie Conquest was filmed in the palace in 1937 with Greta Garbo and Charles Boyer.[4]

    “We know each other,” he agreed. “They say that you follow in my steps.”
    “I go my own way. But you, you had never, until just now, looked behind you. You turned back today for the first time.”
    Geralt remained silent. Tired, he had nothing to say. “How... How will it happen?” he asked her at last, coldly and without emotion. “I will take you by the hand,” she replied, looking him straight in the eye. “I will take you by the hand and lead you across the meadow, through a cold and wet fog.” “And after? What is there beyond the fog?” “Nothing,” she replied, smiling. “After that, there is nothing.”

    Marksburgh, a genuine defensive Rhine castle in Germany. It was damaged in WWII, but had otherwise survived since the Middle Ages. It started out as a fort around 1117, only became a real castle somewhat later, I believe around 1400. It has the authentic plaster cover I mentioned previously in this thread.
