Le Mura, Ferrara

4.6
#2 of 21 in Historic Sites in Ferrara
Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
Built in a triangular shape with sentry towers around the old city's center, Le Mura is standing strong to this day. The ramparts and thick walls are built to resist gunfire. They're topped with turrets where sharp shooters once watched for enemy armies. Inside, paved pathways travel around manicured lawns and the stone foundations of the former town. Enter the fortress using the same gateways that visitors used in the Renaissance: Port of Paola, Port of Angels, or San Giovanni's Port.

  • Beautiful medieval walls that run around the city, always full of people walking or running. Are all covered by beautiful trees and summer create a cool shade. The sudden better-looking goes from the beginning of viale Belvedere till the end of via Portamare, passing in front of the angels. Possibility to take all nine km long cycling, taking it to rent.

  • One of the best place to jog in ferrare are Le Mura, 12 km around the city A lot of people all day long  more »
  • Green path and relaxing inevitable fact by bicycle. One of the few medieval walled complexes then touched up by Este spanning the city and have come down to us are well preserved and intact. Impressive from the outside very nice walk it from above. Originally 13 km 9 km now but that does not take away charm and beauty. The most beautiful and important is porta degli Angeli, la porta delle maestranze and famous people. Ramparts, towers, embrasures, doors and steps alternate. Secure location and suitable for all. You can cover even the way of herbs that takes you to the green space of "urban gardens". Fitness trail and haunt of fares both large and small.
