Drawings And Sketches In Pencil
Castle Hill, Budapest, Hungary.
The population of Castle Hill had started to expand after the Mongol invasion
of 1242. King Béla IV ordered the building of the Buda Castle. In medieval
Buda, 300 houses had 285 wells fed by "cave water". King Béla IV chose
the hill, partly because of its strategic location, and because its wells & caves
provided water and protection for the castle dwellers, even in times of battle.
The inhabitants of the medieval castle probably found the caves hidden in the
depths of the hill while digging the wells. Exploration work has revealed cave
developments from as early as the 11th century. It is possible that the house
arrangements on the surface were laid out according to the cave cellars below.
