Évora, Portugal

Due to its well-preserved old town centre, still partially enclosed by medieval walls, and a large number of monuments dating from various historical periods, including a Roman Temple, Évora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The only city in Baltics that escaped the WW2 barely touched was Tallinn.
Do you have any pictures from that Synagogue ?

AVILA OR AVILA DE LOS CABALLEROS
WORLD HERITAGE CITY
SPAIN


Ávila is most known for the medieval city walls, that were constructed of brown granite in 1090: surmounted by a breastwork, with eighty-eight towers and nine gateways, they are still in excellent repair, but a large part of the city lies beyond their perimeter.
The Gothic cathedral is integrated into the city's defences. It was built between the 12th and 14th centuries, and has the appearance of a fortress, with embattled walls and two solid towers. It contains many interesting sculptures and paintings, besides one especially fine silver pyx, the work of Juán de Arfe, dating from 1571.
The churches of San Vicente, San Pedro and San Segundo are, in their main features,Romanesque of the 12th century.

In the Gothic Monastery of Santo Tomás, erected by the Catholic Queen Isabella in 1482, is especially noteworthy the marble monument, carved by the 15th-century Florentine sculptor Domenico Fancelli, over the tomb of Prince John, the only son of Ferdinand and Isabella.

It pains my heart to see the old cities of Thorn, Kulm and Graudenz where my ancestors came from.
My grandfather lived in these parts before he was thrown out with his entire family by the soviet army.

What was german for over a thousand years is now lost.

Nice to see them so well preserved though!

Thousand? Maybe two thousand? I now that everything is german. No question about that. But unfortunately even before II WW Torun and Chelmno were in Poland not in Germany. And why don't your grandpa cry about german executions of people of Chelmno during II WW?

Fez, Old Sana'a and Islamic Cairo are all vying with the title of largest medieval city, Old Town districts with 200-250,000
inhabitants within the larger city.


Sana'a, Yemen - including over 6000 tower houses (up to 12 storeys), dating back 700 years
