  the Hunger Wall
by sue_stone

The Hunger Wall is located on Petrin Hill. This 14th century stone wall was originally part of the city's southern fortifications.

It is so named as it was constructed as a public works project to feed the poor during a famine - the poor built it in return for food.

You can take a walk along the Hunger Wall and think about how fortunate you are.
