"Mercat Cross on the Royal Mile" Mercat Cross Tip by littlesam1
Mercat Cross, Edinburgh: 6 reviews and 12 photos
Historically the Mercat Cross was the central meeting place where Royal proclamations and other official announcements were read. Although the current Mercat Cross was built in 1885 there is supposed to still be a portion of the original 14th century cross built into the shaft of this newer one. I find these kinds of things fascinating when I travel.
