12 Old Town Wall Surrounding Caernarfon, Wales

Construction of a town wall began around the time Caernarfon was deemed a borough in 1284 by Edward I of England. By the end of the 13th century, the medieval town was encircled by a 2,400 foot ribbon of stone. The citadel consisted of eight round towers like the two shown here on Greengate Street. They were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1986.
