The Anti-pirates Wall

Protecting Trujillo (centuries ago)

muralla cortada



lado derecho de muralla

This wall was built to protect Trujillo from the attack of pirates. Now you only can find two pieces of this large structure. This wall had circular shape, now that shape is an street called Spain Avenue. Inside this circle is downtown with commercial areas, a lot of historic monuments and architectonic pieces.

Hola Irredento, no sabía de estos muros tan antiguos, me parece genial, voy a buscar mas info al respecto.
Lo que no entiendo aún es porque está en inglés todo el texto.

What amazed me as I travelled around Peru was that graffiti is the same in Peru as in Canada. The letters, the style is very, very similar. It is almost as if there is a universal style for graffiti.

Ha, ha, probably not the comment you were expecting.
