    Could it be the Alborz mountains of Iran?

    I don't think more hints are needed. Just nhytgbvfeco2 did the hard work, so giving the answer now is a bit like theft.

    Muizer, if you have a guess, I would say to fire away. nhytbveco has had enough time to say something, and guesses are what keep the ball rolling.

    Aye, I think it's Alamut Castle.

    It is indeed Alamut. A forbidding-looking place, and not hard to see how it remained unconquered for so long. The turn is now Muizer's.

    This is surprisingly hard. I think I lack a name for those tiles.

    Hint: The building style has the word 'revival' in its name.

    Thanks, M! I got a really Middle American vibe out of that and it turned out to be Mayan revival. Ennis House, a residential building in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California.

    This place is geographically far removed from the previous riddle, but there is a connection for those who seek.

    I am super stumped on this one. There is a whole swath of Germany that looks a lot like this, and which I am familiar with, but this could be anywhere in that area. Do you think there is any sort of hint you could give?

    The connection to the previous picture was meant to be kind of a strong hint, but I'll elaborate that this place has the same architect as the previous one. I now realize that a "connection" is actually quite vague and could mean a lot of things.

    I think I got it. Is this Taliesen?

    This is it indeed. Or Taliesin, if you allow the correct spelling. Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio in southern Wisconsin named after a Welsh bard. And also the site of a gruesome mass murder.
