Walls of Piran


Piran - located in southwestern Slovenia on the Adriatic Sea - is one of the most photogenic cities in the Mediterranean. The landscape of this beautiful coastal town located in the peninsula is dominated by the massive walls on the hills above the city. The first wall was built in the 7th century, separating the town into four streets. In the next centuries the wall was moved south-west when the city were expanded.  Significant parts of the fortification walls (15th - 16th century) are well-preserved. Its northern part is accessible for tourists.

  7. I've been there!!! I visited friends in Trieste and we went there for a couple of hours. But we mainly visited the square, had lunch at a lovely restaurant by the sea shore, and had a swim. It seems to be a beautiful town though.

  12. It's fun to think about how old those walls are! Here we are, tearing down a school that's forty years old, in my town!

  13. Nice set of images. I am always amazed at what people were able to construct without any of the tools or technology available to us today.

  14. All are wonderful, but I believe the last is my favorite. Although the first is vivid with the rooftops and colorful sky.
