Discovery trails

Thanks to EU funding the twenty-two Walls and Gardens partners are currently working together, to enhance and preserve these walled cities and their surroundings for future generations.

Once these were military structures but today they are perfect places for relaxation, recreation and for tourism. These are also natural sites of major ecological interest.

 An application in three languages, featuring trails in the project’s four partner countries, is developed in order to help locals and visitors to better understand the history and the exceptional value of these walled cities.

 Explore the walled cities of the “Walls and Gardens” project!

 We hope you enjoy the experience; that you will learn to appreciate this “living fortified heritage” and that it will encourage you to respect it.

The app can be downloaded from the AppStore and from Google Play.
