York City Walls


York Minster Cathedral and Old City Wall, York, England (source)

I've never been to York, a city in northern England. It was founded by the Romans and frequently visited by the Vikings. During its history several walls were build, from which a large portion still exist. Judging by the pictures it looks like a beautiful city.
