Castle is usually regarded as being distinct from the general terms fort or fortress in that it describes a building which serves as a residence and commands a specific territory, but the distinction is not clear cut. See also Category:Forts.

This category also includes buildings which never had a military purpose, but are styled as castles on romantic or stylistic grounds. Most such buildings date from the late 18th to early 20th centuries, and were a manifestation of the Gothic revival in architecture, which was in turn part of the Romantic movement in Western culture. They are sometimes referred to as "Revival castles" or "Mock castles".
