10 Lesser Known Ancient Ruins in Europe


Europe has a rich history that dates back millennia. This isn’t history that can be adequately covered by a visit to Stonehenge or a handful of other ruins. To truly explore the history of the land, you need to get off the beaten track and look where no one else is looking. Below is the list of the lesser known ancient ruins in Europe.

1. Grasburg, Switzerland

To most tourists doing the rounds of Europe’s ancient ruins, Switzerland doesn’t figure prominently on the map. The ruins of Grasburg Castle, though, are well worth a visit. In its time, it is said to have been the entertainment center of the nobles of Burgundy. The ruins are only partially restored today. Locally, it is a popular destination for hiking groups and schoolchildren.
