Lindisfarne Castle, Northumberland, England
St. Aidan, credited with spreading Christianity in northern England in the 7th century, built a cathedral on the fairytale-like Holy Island of Lindisfarne, a tidal island in the northeast coast of England. Today the island is home to Lindisfarne Castle, built as a defensive post.
