Nördlingen, Bavaria, Germany

Perhaps the "ideal" of a medieval walled city with it's circular shape, located in an ancient meteorite crater. Remains of an older wall is visible as the inner ring road:

Visby has a 3,4 km medieval wall. Sadly, good aerials are hard to find but dj4life posted this in the N&B aerial photo thread:

Couldn't quite directly since I felt a higher resolution than he posted was needed to even make the wall visible.

I have perfectly idea about this situation. Europe has one million beautiful places, however lot of them are impossible to show properly.

It's not that difficult.



From Bing Maps, search Visby in bird's eye mode. You have all the perspectives you want there!

Exploiting a bit more Bing Maps. Here you are views of remaining walls in big Spanish towns (it's the case I know best...)

All the walls in this post were mostly built during muslim domination.

Toledo





Almería



Cordoba



Seville

Part II

Roman walls in the northwest. The one in Lugo, already showed.





Walls of León, which are Roman too.





And several medieval city walls in Castile.

Segovia





Burgos



And the most famous one in the whole country, Ávila.
