"O castelo é uma fortaleza de magia antiga."
Alvo Dumbledore para Harry Potter[src]

Castelo de Hogwarts is a magical building with many towers and turrets, built over a thousand years ago by a wizard architect. It is home to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. If Muggles approach the castle, all they will see is a mouldering ruin with a sign warning them to keep out and that it is unsafe. It is also protected by numerous ancient spells and incantations to protect the inhabitants, strong enough to apparently resist the dispelling effects of the Taboo. Hogwarts is built in a forested area, and sits on the edge of the Black Lake. The castle is located in Scotland, near the village of Hogsmeade. The castle's architecture is always changing, a feature contributed by Hogwarts founder Rowena Ravenclaw.

Câmara SecretaEditar

Artigo principal: Chamber of Secrets
"He was standing at the end of a long, dimly lit chamber. Towering stone pillars entwined with more serpents, rose to a ceiling lost in darkness, casting long, black shadows through the odd, greenish gloom that filled the place"
—Harry, exploring the chamber

The Chamber of Secrets was allegedly created deep under the dungeons of Hogwarts Castle during Medieval times by Salazar Slytherin, who disagreed with the other Hogwarts Founders on the merits of blood purity. The Chamber of Secrets was home to an ancient Basilisk, which was intended to be used to purge the school of Muggle-born students. The entrance can be found in Moaning Myrtle's bathroom on the second floor. In order to gain entrance one must say "open" in Parseltongue and a sink will open into a slide. While falling down the large, dark pipe, one can see hundreds of other pipes leading off. At the end of the pipe, one is launched into a damp, stone chamber. This room is stated to be "miles beneath the school".

The Entrance Gates are made of magnificent wrought iron and are flanked by two columns topped with statues of winged boars. Just a few yards from the gates is a small guardhouse with a tall chimney.

Clock Tower CourtyardEditar

Artigo principal: Clock Tower Courtyard

The Clock Tower Courtyard is a cloister on the base of the Clock Tower at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This cloister seems to be one of the older parts of the castle and the ceiling and walls are dilapidated. It also leads to the Covered Bridge.

Covered BridgeEditar

Artigo principal: Covered Bridge

The Covered Bridge is a feature of Hogwarts Castle. The bridge appears derelict, and is constructed of wood beams which extend to the floor of the ravine it lays across. The roof of the Covered Bridge is sagging and appears thatched and tarred. The bridge blends in with the natural environment surrounding it.

The Covered Bridge begins at one end of the Clock Tower Courtyard, at the base of the Clock Tower. At the end of the covered bridge there is a small stone gazebo with benches. Outside of it is the Stone Circle. Given its unstable look it is possibly held up by magic.

Training GroundsEditar

Artigo principal: Training Grounds

This is where Flying classes are taught to first years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by Madam Hooch. The grounds are flat, short-cut grassy areas and are located near the Herbology greenhouses. It is overlooked by the Training Grounds Tower.

White TombEditar

Artigo principal: White Tomb

The White Tomb is the only grave at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Located on the shores of the Lake, it is the final resting place of Albus Dumbledore, who willingly gave his life in the service of the Order of the Phoenix fighting Lord Voldemort's Death Eaters in the course of the Second Wizarding War.

Other locations on the groundsEditar

Unknown locationsEditar

Book of Monster's Repair WorkshopEditar

The Book of Monster's Repair Workshop is one of the rooms at Hogwarts Castle that is seen on the Marauder's Map. It is, presumably, the place where damaged copies of The Monster Book of Monsters are repaired.

Cauldron cupboardEditar

Artigo principal: Cauldron cupboard

The Cauldron cupboard is one of the rooms seen on the Marauder's Map. It is possibly a store room where cauldrons are kept. It is possible that the cupboard is close to the Potions Classroom or Snape's provisions cupboard.

Stink Bomb StoreEditar

Artigo principal: Stink Bomb Store

The Stink Bomb Store is one of the rooms seen on the Marauder's Map. It is possibly an illegal store, because when a Hogwarts Professor bursts in the students inside it run out of the room. It is (possibly) the place where Stink Bombs and Dungbombs are sold.

Serpentine CorridorEditar

Artigo principal: Serpentine Corridor

This is a wide, curved corridor in the Hogwarts Turris Magnus at Hogwarts Castle. One can access the Defence Against the Dark Arts, the Ghoul Studies and Arithmancy Classrooms through this corridor, as well as Lost Wands.

Other unknown locationsEditar

Origin of nameEditar

Arquivo:Hogwarts by Grandpre.jpg

Before the Four Wizards built the castle, the site was a rocky hill beside the loch; there may have been rePrincipals of older fortifications on the site. The name 'Hogwarts' looks as if it may derive from Old Norse Hǫggvar virki = "the fortification belonging to (a Viking called) Hǫggvi"; the name Hǫggvi would be his shipboard nickname, not his birth-name, and means "the one who slays" or the like. (The name Hogsmeade (the village) looks like that it may have derived from Old Norse Hǫggvar smiðja = "Hǫggvi's smithy".)

Behind the scenesEditar


Differences between books and filmsEditar

Throughout the Harry Potter films, Hogwarts Castle has changed significantly:

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's StoneEditar

Arquivo:Hogwarts boats 1.jpg

In the Philosopher's Stone film, only the parts of the castle that were needed for the film were created. This means that many areas of Hogwarts were missed. Areas of the castle included in the film were:

Harry Potter and the Chamber of SecretsEditar

Arquivo:Hogwarts in Chamber of Secrets.jpg

In the Chamber of Secrets film, there are a few small changes:

  • The Training Grounds Tower's design has been changed, it now looks similar to the Clock Tower, only without the clock.
  • The Greenhouses are added to the east corner of the castle below the Bell Towers.
  • The Whomping Willow is added to the Training Grounds. It is possible that the Whomping Willow was there in Philosopher's Stone, but it was never shown.
  • A trench is added to the Quidditch stadium.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of AzkabanEditar

The Prisoner of Azkaban film sees the most drastic changes to the castle in the series. But, the Principal shape of Hogwarts is still there. These changes probably came about because of the new director, Alfonso Cuarón. These are some of the Principal changes that are seen in this film:

Harry Potter and the Goblet of FireEditar

Arquivo:Hogwartsmatte1c2 (2).jpg

In the Goblet of Fire film, there are the following changes:

Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixEditar

The Order of the Phoenix film sees the least changes as nothing noticeable happens to the castle. However:

  • The cones on the four smaller towers in front of the Central Tower are made taller.
  • Cones are added to the turrets of the Clock Tower Courtyard.
  • The Stone Circle is removed from the entrance to the Covered Bridge.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceEditar


In the Half-Blood Prince film, there are two major changes from the earlier films:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2Editar

While omitted from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 aside from a brief cameo appearance, In a trailer of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, we get only a glimpse of the castle grounds. However, there are these noticeable changes:

The Wizarding World of Harry PotterEditar


A castle has been built in Universal Orlando Studios for the Forbidden Journey in the "Wizarding World of Harry Potter Theme Park". It includes:

Although it is based on the castle seen in Half-Blood Prince, most of it is missing and it differs greatly from the one seen in the films:

  • The Viaduct isn't connected to the Entrance Courtyard.
  • The Great Hall is not connected to the Grand Staircase Tower.
  • The Astronomy Tower takes the place of the Central Tower.
  • The Stone Bridge is only connected to the Grand Staircase Tower.

Harry Potter and the Forbidden JourneyEditar

The castle seen during the ride is Hogwarts as seen in Half-Blood Prince, but there are some differences:

  • The new Boathouse from Deathly Hallows is added.
  • A skinnier version of the new tower seen in the Deathly Hallows trailers, adjacent to the Stone Bridge Tower, can be seen.

The Queen's HandbagEditar

The castle seen here is the same as seen in the first film.

Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4Editar

Hogwarts in the LEGO Harry Potter game seems to be based on the castle shown in Prisoner of Azkaban, although it is based on the first four films. Presumably, this is because it includes the Entrance Hall Antechamber which only appears in the first three films; and also the Central and Bell Towers have the shape used from the third film onwards. However, The Clock Tower is not connected to the castle like in the films. Also, it seems that the Whomping Willow will change location from the second to third year as it does in the films.
