Fun facts: The center of this castle was built in 1290. To put that into perspective: That's exactly 200 years before Christopher Columbus first set foot on American ground. It was never destroyed and has remained in the possession of the original family since day one. Pretty crazy to think about.:

The Court of Honor at The World's Fair: Columbian Exposition. This was a World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492. I just finished reading a book about this (The Devil In the White City, by Erik Larson), so I'm frolicing in seeing more photos of the Fair right now.
