"The castle of Cair Paravel on its little hill towered up above
them; before them were the sands, with rocks and little pools of salt
water, and seaweed, and the smell of the sea and long miles of
bluish-green waves breaking for ever and ever on the beach."
- The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe

I grew up reading the Chronicles of Narnia and recently began to imagine a Cair Paravel - not from the movie, but inspired by the books, with its apple orchard, bustling docks, and the Dawn Treader heading out to sea. This is my realization of that vision. I've been working on it for about five months - download the save and take a look around, it's bigger than it looks!

Thanks to teutates10, zortron and LemonShadow for contributing ships to the cause!
Also, thanks to freekm1234 and MrFluffyCakes for the gorgeous renders!

Oh. My. Gossssshhhhh.

I love the book and movie so much, and this build is absolutely- I mean seriously, there are no words to describe the beauty and perfection of this build.
Absolutely amazing!
I've featured you in my Top weekly builds, thanks a lot for the map!

Not a survival map since it doesn't have a lot of interior, but I did do interior on the great hall and the main tower, so I would suggest downloading and taking a walk through it!

This is a mega-build as I admire them, I congratulate you for the work that you realize is less rare to see Mega Build as beautiful, but it's always a pleasure to see opportunities sizes and detail that it is possible to do =)

I actually made five thrones - I imagined this castle as the one that Caspian X rebuilt, and as such made a central throne for him, and the four thrones on either side of it as a nod to the Pevensies.

I have to say, in my Opinion, the village could be better...nothing special.
But damn, the Castle is simply amazing. One of the best projects I´ve seen. The "Dawn Treader" as well is just awesome. 
Great work :)
