Dalarö Church

Haninge, Sweden

The wooden church of Dalarö was built in 1651, couple of decades after Dalarö was established as a toll station of Stockholm city. The church got its present appearance in 1787. It has survived completely from the large fires in Dalarö.

There is a pulpit from 1630s, originally created for Tyresö church but donated to Dalarö in 1639 (because it was not considered good enough for the new church in Tyresö). Around the church is a small cemetery that has not been used since the 1880s. A freestanding bell tower from 1745 is located on a hill near the church.

Fin träkyrka och aktivt kyrkoarbete med värme. Samt en sjö bad klockstapel från rysshärjningarnas tid.

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.
