    While a Bogside exudes all the pain and violence suffered, but also hope, thanks to murals that contain positive images and "universal" (the face of Mother Teresa, the doves of peace etc), here you can feel tension in the air, "closure" and sectarianism. Not anything happening, but there's an image that calls for peace and reconciliation and the (few) people encountered do not demonstrate the same friendliness toward foreigners who finds herself in the Republicans. To be fair, I admit to having an opinion on the history of Northern Ireland that I probably have the best verse "this side of the fence". Visit that can be done very quickly, better to spend a little more time to visit the Bogside.

    Bad by the roadblocks, barricades and police don't like it, that this is in 2016 still can. It was only seen from the wall, by the roadblock we could not really come in handy.

    This is the enclave protested to Derry. The Fountain. Here people have a different vision of the facts. The neighborhood is definitely more shabby than Catholic, cared less, less handled almost abandoned. Move through the streets not just the feeling of safety even if nobody has bothered. But everything is quite decadent. There are murals by see, threatening and recalling that Protestants are living holed up terrorists ' fault for Catholics. There are British and British union jack flags everywhere, sidewalks colored with the colors of the flag of her Majesty the same for light poles. It's not very interesting as that of the Bogside but in my opinion is worth a visit just to give a different view of how we live today (and what life was like 40 years ago) in Derry.

Where to stay in Derry

Derry, or Londonderry, town center is a lively place to stay. Although the town itself suffered during the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the center stayed safe and has thrived. Consider an inn in the town center, perhaps a building painted with one of the well-known murals. less expensive hotels are available just outside the town's central area, close enough to the main attractions for convenient access.
