Known in Swedish as "ringmur" as it is a wall encircling what was once the entire city, this is an impressive wall and whilst you can walk on the walls at York or Tallinn, what is impressive with Visby is the setting of it all, here and there along the seafront and much of it along the ditches where stone has been dug out, creating so called "gravar" or graves outside the walls to the north and east which is particularly visible in my intro picture. To be ctd.

Directions: Impossible to miss.
