  • we accessed the walls from almost at the quayside. We might have had less climbing if we had come from the other direction but it was worth it for the views. The day was very windy so holding onto.....  more »
  • It's free to walk around the impressive town walls. There are quite a lot of steps and steep inclines in places. It probably gets slippery when wet. Great views of the town, castle and surrounding.....  more »

  • Incredibly impressive complete ring of walls, dating from the 13th century. There is a section that is too unsafe for walking on, but you can walk most of the way around, as long as you're reasonably mobile and fit. The views are fantastic and this really feels like touching history.
  • Really cool history with these walls surrounding the town. At times the walk was quite steep. Also, I will say, it was a bit confusing on the walls nearest the castle (southwest). They seemed to end but then you walked a few blocks and picked back up. Anyways, I would definitely do this if in the city for a visit. 30 minutes max.
