Milano, Italia

The remains of the old city walls are not imposing for their structure, but make a nice setting to relax and take a panoramic view of the Old Town.

First to Review

The barbican is part of the old city wall that snakes its way around the edges of the old town, which was built as a means of defence back in the 16th century. Despite this, the barbican only came under attack once when the Swedish attacked the city back in the middle of the 17th century. The barbican and city walls had to be completely restored after WWII, and now serves as a worthwhile attraction whilst passing from the new to old towns of the city.

Playa de Gandia, Spain

Antigua fortaleza del siglo XVI, cuya principal función junto con la de las murallas era defender el casco histórico de la ciudad. Construida en ladrillo y con una estructura semicircular y dos grandes torres, impone a la vista. Este edificio fue casi destruido en su totalidad por los bombardeos nazis durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, pero gracias a su reconstruccion, hoy se puede observar en todo su esplendor.
