Trinitatis Church

Fredericia, Denmark

The present structure of Trinitatis Church was consecrated in 1690 and built in a late medieval style. A few decorated stones are included in the foundations, which come from a medieval church that was pulled down shortly after the setting up of Fredericia as a fortified town around 1650. The Romanesque font comes from the same source and along with a Baroque font canopy, is one of the church`s treasures. The majority of the interior is otherwise influenced by the late Baroque style. There are several memorials in the cemetery that are of significance for military historians.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
