2.2.- The time of the castles


            About 1000 years ago, most people worked in the field and lived in small villages.

 The nobility constructed castles surrounded by walls, in which they resided with their family. The farmers of the villages took refuge within the castle in times of war.

            At this time great monasteries were also constructed, and later numerous cathedrals were built.
