Yesterday I had the pleasure of playing Caylus.The whole game my strategy
was to play in the castle as much as possible,trying to get as many favors as I could.My plan worked like a charm until I got to the final favor in the building row,when I it came to build the prestige building my counterparts told me I would have to pay the building cost of 4 gold
and 2 silver stones.I thought it was Free.Can Ayone tell me If I my Friends stole a win from me or were they right?

They're right; the favor doesn't grant you the prestige building, it grants you the opportunity to build one.

Using the favor building track, you only have a discount for the carpenter (wood), mason (stone) and lawyer (money). You pay the architect full price: in your case, the 2 gold and 4 stones cost I presume.
Just a reminder: you can always use the effects lower in the building track (like doing a 6-points stone building if you don't have enough cubes for a prestige building).
