A castle is a type of fortified structure built during the Middle Ages by European nobility. Castles were used to protect families and their property from enemies, as well as to control the local populace.

They typically consisted of thick walls, moats, and drawbridges, and often featured towers, secret passages, and hidden rooms.

Building a castle in Minecraft can be a fun and rewarding experience. Not only will you have a cool structure to show off to your friends, but you’ll also learn about medieval architecture and engineering.

Plus, it’s just really satisfying to see a massive project come together.
