Única puerta de entrada que se conserva de la muralla de Curiel de Duero. Cerca de pueden observar restos de la muralla. Se recomienda visitar de día y de noche, ya que tiene una buena iluminación nocturna. Está bien conservada y tiene unas bonitas vistas del castillo

The only entrance door that remains of the Curiel de Duero wall. Near you can see remains of the wall. It is recommended to visit day and night, as it has good night lighting. It is well preserved and has beautiful views of the castle

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
