Næsbyholm is first mentioned in 1388. The original creator of Naesbyholm, however, was Sten Brahe who built a magnificent rennaissance castle in 1585. This burnt down, unfortunately, in 1932. A new main building was erected, but this was partially destroyed by fire in 1947. The present building was built in the style of the original. Today Næsbyholm provides wedding and event services.References:
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.
