国定史跡 鶴ヶ城
1394年東黒川館として造られたのが始まりとされています。
1593年には7層の天守閣が完成し城の名前を鶴ヶ城と命名。
1611年の震度6以上の地震により天守閣が傾き、
1639年天守閣を5層に直して現在の姿になりました。


1868年から日本全土で新政府軍に抵抗する各統治組織との間で内戦がおきました。
会津藩も新政府軍と抵抗するため鶴ヶ城に立てこもりましたが、
激しい攻撃を受けこれ以上の犠牲は出せないと1ヶ月後に降参しました。
この間鶴ヶ城は攻撃から耐えた事で難攻不落の名城と称えられました。
その後1874年政府の命令により取り壊され、現在の鶴ヶ城は1965年に再建されました。
2011年には黒色の屋根から当時を忠実に再現した赤色の瓦で屋根が復元されました。
鶴ヶ城は日本で唯一の赤瓦を使用したお城です。 鶴ヶ城武者走り
敵を迎え撃つため城内の兵がいっせいに石垣上に
駆け上がることができるように、また兵の「登り」と「降り」
を区別するため左右に階段があるともいわれております。

鉄門
鶴ヶ城の正門。
この門の壁面は鉄で覆われていることからこの名が付いた。

本丸
現在の芝生の広場には、
行政としての機能や生活の場所などがあり、
多くの建物があった。

石垣
石野面積(のずらずみ)といわれる工法で積まれています。
この工法は自然の石をあまり加工せず積み上げるやりかたで、
傾斜が緩やかで、裾野が広いのが特徴です
