Stiernorps Slott

Stjärnorp Castle Castle Ruin Stjärnorps Slott Stjärnorp Castle
This is the Stiernorp, (old spelling), castle and castle ruin at Roxenbaden in Östergötland. Built back in 1655 by the famous architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder for Greve,(Earl), Robert Douglas. The castle was completely destroyed in a fire in 1789. The wings were soon rebuilt, but there was no money for the main building so it has been a ruin ever since that fire. At the moment there are some work being done at the ruin so that it will not collapse. More photos to come.

Quite fitting, I think, to photograph it at this time of year.
