Incorrect: The castle in Chess can move as any spaces desired right, left, up, or down, but not diagonally! There is another move called "castle king side". this is when the king and the castle in the same row and with no players in between them, and they switch places! ================== Answer: There seems to be some confusion, above, between the move to 'castle' and the piece that looks like a castle, but is actually named the 'rook.' The rook can move any number of spaces forward or back, or from side to side (providing that another piece is not blocking its way), but not diagonally. 'Castling' is a special move involving both the king and either one of the rooks. Castling can be done on either the king's side or the queen's side of the board. There are a few technicalities to the move that have been answered in other questions in this subcategory. It is not correct to say the pieces just switch places.
