20 Fairy Tale Locations

“Fairy stories loosen the chains of the imagination. They give you things to think with – images to think with – and the senses that all kinds of things are possible” – Philip Pullman 
Fortunately, the real world does hold a number of mysterious and spectacular sights, from the caves in Mexico, to the Chocolate Hills of the Philippines. The world is simply magnificent.  It’s brimming with dream like castles, palaces, and fortified cities that look like they jumped right out of the pages of a magical book. In fact, several of them are rumored to have inspired the castles that appear in Walt Disney’s animated films, including Château de Chambord which inspired the classic fairytale story The Beauty and The Beast.  Albeit the Castle is what most would consider nothing but beauty. The Alcazar of Segovia Castle in Spain inspired the romantic tale of Cinderella, a fairytale surrounding a beautiful princess who won the heart of her beloved prince and the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany which brought to life the dramatic tale between good and evil and the power of love Sleeping Beauty.

View these wondrous locations and let yourself be swept away by reverie. Inspiration awaits.
