Cultural buildings are special buildings constructed in castles that are specific to the ruler's culture. Most cultures have different cultural buildings from each other.

These correspond to the cultural retinue of the ruler, and beginning with patch 2.4 the retinue receives the benefit of cultural buildings in the capital holding in addition to its own unique features.
