Windsor- Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle has been the home of English monarchs ever since William the Conqueror constructed it over 900 years ago.  It is a formidable crenelated edifice with massive walls and towers that was built to discourage any would-be upstart from attacking it.  Mission accomplished.  No one ever did.

On the castle's grounds is St. George's Chapel(final resting place of Henry VIII), which has a beautiful fan-vaulted ceiling and a delightfully small cloisters.  Perfect place to sit and meditate on infinite things.
