Given current Wikipedia policy to merge/redirect all fictional stubs, I'm being BOLD and redirecting this stub back to Narnia.

Eight years later another editor has revived the proposal to delete this article. I agree.
This page should not redirect to Narnia, the main article, but to the section List of places in The Chronicles of Narnia#Cair Paravel, and that is primarily where appropriate content should be merged --perhaps including the Disney image, as the List will benefit from one.
We have other Places articles that should be deleted, certainly including Miraz's Castle. A quick tour show that this one and Lantern Waste alone carry images from the film; neither article covers the portrayal in film.

Support as the editor who proposed deletion and would be quite content to see the material here merged. DonIago (talk) 16:13, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Meaning of the name[edit]

Have any citable sources given an idea of what "Paravel" means? (assuming "cair" is connected to caer==fort?) The Wednesday Island 02:30, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

I'm curious too. It sounds kind of French to me, which is cool. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:07, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Inspired by Dunluce Castle?[edit]

I have seen a number of tourist information leaflets (like this) claiming Lewis based Cair Paravel on the ruins of Dunluce Castle, on the Antrim coastline in Northern Ireland. Is this just a commonly held opinion or is there good evidence that C.S. used it as a basis? Catriona McM (talk) 15:00, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

While I personally have never heard that, it may indeed be true. Either way, if you can find a your bureau guide or something as a reliable source,it could be added as "Some claims[ref]..." Random89 06:10, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
It may be true, as he based the landscape of Narnia on some mountain range in Northern Ireland, I forget which. Very vague, I know, but it shows that some elements in Narnia were based on Northern Ireland. TopGearFreak Talk 18:25, 7 November 2008 (UTC)
