Medieval walls of Ávila at night

walls at Night, Ávila, Central Spain
Ávila is renowned for its medieval city walls and rightly so.
The whole old town centre is encircled by the granite city walls and is a truly impressive sight at night.
Ávila is on the world heritage list and it’s not only fun to walk the walls but also to just explore the medieval streets and churches.

Canal St. Martin

Another photo from the Canal St. Martin in Paris. The atmosphere here is completely different compare to the more renowned attractions, but I'd prefer it even to a stroll along the Seine. A notice about homeless people camping in tents along this old canal reminded me of my last Paris visit.
