We were on a one hour tour Which started in the shopping center with this medieval wall. We went into the old town and, all in all, it was very interesting. The guide made it especially so with his detailed information and stories.

Great to see these ancient structures were not lost under 20c development. Not really worth a special trip to see them but if your passing the shopping centre then pop in

Love that this wall was incorporated into the modern architecture of a mall. So many old relics and ruins are destroyed since they have no functional use, so this was really wonderful to see. It’s also much larger than expected.

The Idea of preserving the medieval city walls of the city is great idea. The fact they're inside a shopping centre made it really novel. I would absolutely recommend taking a look if you're near by but the shopping centre is a bit of a...More

We were in the shopping mall when we came upon the medieval city walls. I have to give them credit for incorporating them into the mall so beautifully. If you did not know it, you would think that the builders just included this as an...More

The medieval wall is mixed in with the older part of the town. It is even the mall. It is worth seeing parts of it while you tour the City
