ITALY

Set at the confluence of the Lerrone and Arroscia, which already provided a natural defense, its walls proved invaluable for protecting the population from the frequent raids by Barbary pirates. The battlemented walls, over seven meters or twenty-three feet high, have two gates and a total of ten round or polygonal towers. The layout within the walls has a recognizably military character, with streets that intersect at right angles at regular intervals. In the center of the town stands a characteristic well (which still has its old chains and buckets).
