St. Peter and Paul is a Gothic church in the quarter of Detwang in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The most important piece of artwork in the church is the crucifixion reredos by Tilman Riemenschneider.
Only fragments of the crucifixion copies have survived to the present day. It depicts the crucifixion of Christ but there is no record of its origin. However, it has been attributed to Tilman Riemenschneider and his workshop due to its close stylistic relationship to his other works. The sculptural decoration is dated to the years 1505 and 1508 and was therefore created as the same time as Creglingen's Marian reredos.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.
