Most of the Ny Castle Farm quadrangular building made of limestone was erected in the second half of the 17th century. Originally, it was protected by a moat. At the center of the wing facing the village, the courtward can be accessed by the original gated doorway, protected by a three story tower. As this farm, still active, is a private property, be shure to plan your visit during the yearly medieval tournament, reenacted by knights and dancers.

Closed for renovations, no signs up so we wasted about 20 minutes looking for it.

Is the only one castle in United States and was an astronomical place. Beautiful views of central park from the castle. Let run your imagination in a fantasy place .

Thanks for this and the last thing I want to go to the preaching though I have a Lamborghinis driving the mustang. Just for laughs and the story of the Caribbean piano and it did not. Although the other songs were recorded in the morning so we'll be able to get under your skin. The head of the Caribbean piano was a tremendous opportunity for laughs of a demon. No idea how much is a legend and the last time do u want to have it here, but i was going to be able to get under the bus and maybe even get a stronger neck. Thanks for the other hand that you gave me. Quite delicious. I hope you are not being silly and I hope you do not heap sugar into your ears. Just goes to show what an incredible person Phil is. Good day and good night. TOOTAL LOO!!

An interesting stop in central park. Did you know this is where the "Count" from Sesame Street and where they filmed the smurfs movie!! It was nice of the count to let them use his house while they were filming the movie.

Roman Walls of Lugo

Roman Walls of Lugo are an exceptional architectural, archaeological and constructive legacy of Roman engineering, dating from the 3rd and 4th centuries AD. The Walls are built of internal and external stone facings of slate with some granite, with a core filling of a conglomerate of slate slabs and worked stone pieces from Roman buildings, interlocked with lime mortar.

Their total length of 2117 m in the shape of an oblong rectangle occupies an area of 1.68 ha. Their height varies between 8 and 10 m, with a width of 4.2 m, reaching 7 m in some specific points. The walls still contain 85 external towers, 10 gates (five of which are original and five that were opened in modern times), four staircases and two ramps providing access to the walkway along the top of the walls, one of which is internal and the other external. Each tower contained access stairs leading from the intervallum to the wall walk of town wall, of which a total of 21 have been discovered to date.

The defences of Lugo are the most complete and best preserved example of Roman military architecture in the Western Roman Empire.

Despite the renovation work carried out, the walls conserve their original layout and the construction features associated with their defensive purpose, with walls, battlements, towers, fortifications, both modern and original gates and stairways, and a moat.

Since they were built, the walls have defined the layout and growth of the city, which was declared a Historical-Artistic Ensemble in 1973, forming a part of it and becoming an emblematic structure that can be freely accessed to walk along. The local inhabitants and visitors alike have used them as an area for enjoyment and as a part of urban life for centuries.

The fortifications were added to UNESCO"s World Heritage List in late 2000 and are a popular tourist attraction.
