Yes it does, as do most buildings that are almost 800 years old.

Easy to find though, "small castle on a hill", and there it was on the first page. The picture was an angle from the side, not showing much of the front, but enough similarities to figure it out.

There is actually a pic of the front, lower on the page of my search that I did not see, would have made my response a little quicker.
