The well preserved walls and the town enclosed within them are perhaps the most interesting features of Montblanc. The interior is quite hilly in places so if you decide to explore as much of the walls as can be accessed, be prepared for a few steep ascents.

We managed to more or less follow the walls around three sides of the time, sometimes inside and sometimes outside. We ...
