Mansilla de las Mulas
Remains of city walls, gateways and defensive towers
This is one of the best mediaeval works of fortification in the province of León. It dates from the time at which Ferdinand II repopulated the town. The walls are made from limestone and rock and are crowned with battlements. Large fragments of the wall, several fortified towers, and one of the four gates –the Santa María gate– can still be seen today.
