As a big fan of Hannibal and an art historian, I’ve always been intrigued by this castle that we can see as the Lecter family’s castle in season three. So I did some research, and I found out that it is actually this castle : château de Noisy (or château Miranda) in Belgium.
And I also found out that this castle was abandonned since 1991, and that it is now threatened to be destroyed (Wikipedia even says that the castle has actually been destroyed in October 2017, but I couldn’t find any proof of it).
So I just wanted to share these pictures with you, enjoy this beautiful castle, and cry, maybe, over its fate and destruction.
look, girls like us are magnets for ruin. see the sky collapse on us each morning. see the light leave our bodies as we remember we aren’t beautiful. don’t you know? girls like us look prettiest in pieces.
here, here are the hands: look how still they are, look how simple (ignore the trembling) (ignore the bloody knuckles)
here, here is the mouth: that’s right, stitch it shut (doesn’t matter if it hurts) (doesn’t matter if there are things you want to say)
look, girls like us are ¾ disaster. see how we bleed and bruise and burn. see what a pretty sound it makes.
“Aveces solo la tristeza llega a ti, esa clase de tristeza que no, no sabes el por que y estas allí sin poder evitarlo , te encuentras sin idea a donde ir ni a quien recurrir eso te hace sentir tan solo y perdido .cada vez mas muerto . cada vez mas en la oscuridad”
