Good views, nice place to take a walk and take a look of the city surroundings.

The old city remains totally enclosed by these ancient walls and there is a wide path to wall all along to top of the walls. Attractive city.

Easy access, well maintained and so wonderfull to see the locals on their morning walk... Along a couple of thousands years

UNESCO World Heritage Site as its the finest totally in tact Roman fortification in Western Europe. Dates back to 3rd Century. Over 2 km in length. As well as great views expect to see lots of local folk taking exercise or walking the dog.The locals say most things inside the walls are more expensive than outside!

A great feat indeed. A fortress standing tall and intact for the past 1800 years is not a joke. You can stroll along this marvel which is around 2 kms long and enjoy the view of the city of Lugo.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
