Castle of Friendship
Location Ponyville
Type Castle

The Castle of Friendshipis a crystal castle made at some point during the Era of Two Sisters and was the residence of Twilight Sparkle during the later days of the Era of Twilight.


After Twilight ascended to the throne and became the Queen of Equestria, the castle was either turned into a dormitory for students at the School of Friendship, or became a tourist attraction.[1]


The castle is fairly thin by castle standards, with a conical baseline instead the typical base of a castle. It is made of blue crystals that jet from the ground like branches of a tree with several jagged and sharp twist and turns. The living quarters of the castle are a more distinct shade of purple with small towers and arches. The roofs and balcony of the castle are yellow tiled ones, slightly resembling golden crowns. The top of the castle is marked by a striped, yellow-orange roof with three sharp indents and a light blue star.

In spite of its majesty, the castle was met with disapproval by several Equestrians The Pony described it as being an ugly site and Twilight herself found it hard to appreciate the castle after her homely and modest library was destroyed by Tirek.

    A: We never decided what would happen to it, but I like to imagine it became a tourist attraction, or additional student housing for the school.”
