25 Most Amazing Moats From Around the World

Posted by on January 30, 2013

Moats, as many would recall it, are mostly found surrounding fortresses, castles, and other structures that demand an elevated level of defense. These bodies of water surrounding mighty edifices serve as primary protection so that soldiers and other melee groups will not easily penetrate the guarded territory. Some moats are dug very deep while others are infested with fishes that feast on human flesh. These days however, moats are typically an addition to the beauty and majesty of castles and forts that were once symbols of war. Let us venture into these famous places and visit the 25 most amazing moats around the world.
