Lengthy piece of the original town wall from the medieval era in the 13th-15th centuries. Several towers are still there and were in use for several centuries afterward. Great informational signs. Nice walk along the one side--the other is an alley in use by local...More

I love the city walls, they are so cool and full of history and you can even see the stains left from some of the old buildings that were built up against them, like the lead works (I think). Its better seen on a guided...More
