We decided to stroll through the mall and discovered that there is a big piece of the old city wall and tower that the mall has been built around. It gives some history of the area and the wall/tower. Very nice to see the way...More

We were shocked to see the way the indoor mall had been integrated into the medieval walls. Lots of shops and all were packed with the bank holiday weekend.

We were on a one hour tour Which started in the shopping center with this medieval wall. We went into the old town and, all in all, it was very interesting. The guide made it especially so with his detailed information and stories.

Great to see these ancient structures were not lost under 20c development. Not really worth a special trip to see them but if your passing the shopping centre then pop in

Love that this wall was incorporated into the modern architecture of a mall. So many old relics and ruins are destroyed since they have no functional use, so this was really wonderful to see. It’s also much larger than expected.

The Idea of preserving the medieval city walls of the city is great idea. The fact they're inside a shopping centre made it really novel. I would absolutely recommend taking a look if you're near by but the shopping centre is a bit of a...More

We were in the shopping mall when we came upon the medieval city walls. I have to give them credit for incorporating them into the mall so beautifully. If you did not know it, you would think that the builders just included this as an...More
