During the medieval times, it was absolutely fundamental to build a wall surrounding a city, to protect the people and the territories from possible enemies’ invasions.
As a result of that, nowadays all the ruins and towns belonging to those years, present beautiful structures of stonewalls, which despite the fact that they are centuries old, still look completely intact!
All those beautiful cities are today top destinations on tourist’s trails, as they are stunning and fascinating to admire from the outside of the walls; and at the same time they are full of historical and cultural spots in the inside.
For this reason The Golden Scope prepared a list of the most wonderful walled towns in the world for you to have a look at!
