Angerdshestra Church

Månsarp, Sweden

In 1910 during the restoration of Angerdshestra church 30 old pergaments were found revealing that the old church was inaugurated in the 13th century. Today documents are located in Stockholm Historical Museum. The current church was made of wood in 1669 to the site of medieval church. It was enlarged and restored in the 18th century. The oldest artefact is a wooden sculpture of St. Anne, dating from the 15th century. The altar was probably painted by Johan Kinnerus between 1716-1717.

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.
