Photo Friday: Brederode Castle

The medieval Brederode Castle, in the Dutch town Santpoort. Originally built in the 13th century, it was destroyed and rebuilt many times. In 1679, when the last member of the Brederode family died, it was abandoned for good.

Today, the castle is government property. It is open to the public, except in winter. The castle may close its doors soon, though, due to lack of funding.
