City Walls

Part of the city walls around Derry/Londonderry. The city's walls were built between 1613 and 1619. It is the only city in Ireland with completely intact walls.

I see it still has a row of cannons on it too

@grouser: I'm amazed the cannons are still there given the problems in Londonderry during the troubles!

Don from Spokane, United Kingdom

A fine picture of this novel fully walled city. That must attract many visitors who want to walk entirely around it.

@Don: It's quite an experience walking around the walls. As you say, Don, they attract a lot of tourists.
