Cerro del Bú

Toledo, Spain

Predating Roman Toledo, this small but steep hill on the less populated side of the Río Tajo is sprinkled with Bronze Age remains overlain with vestiges of a 10th-century Moorish fort. A path leads down from the main road where there’s an explanatory board and site map. It’s best integrated into a visit to the Mirador del Valle viewpoint nearby.

Asentamiento antiguo de Toledo, son restos arqueológicos de una antigua fortaleza, aún en periodo de excavación pero en un paraje donde se tiene la ciudad a la vista con una panorámica inigualable. Totalmente recomendable por su historia además por la carretera de circunvalación. Es imprescindible ir en coche y hay aparcamiento unos metros más arriba.

Una pequeña montaña junto al río Tajo llena de naturaleza y vida, aunque muchas veces no la podamos ver y con una historia a sus espaldas de más de 2000 años

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
