This town wall, which is flanked by the tower ( Nun's tower) is located on the North and Northwest of the Old city. It surely make you feel like living in the olde days.

For €3 you can climb a metal spiral staircase to the old town walls. There is not a great length to walk along but you do get a nice view of spires and rooves of the old town. Find the entrance near to the flower market. We were the only customers while we were there.

Absolutely beautiful and super long town wall. Walk along it on the inside of old town to get the most beautiful scenes of the town. Surprisingly few tourists around there.

You can walk all the way around the old town and see large parts of the old wall, very well preserved and accessible to the public as well. At certain points you can climb up to the walkways via the original towers to have a nice view of the old town.

It was very interesting seeing the wall on the inside and the area where the guards used to do their watch. I wish it had a little more historical information.
