Puerta de Tierra, Campeche

Discover a piece of Mexican history by visiting Puerta de Tierra of Campeche City, the only walled city in Mexico. Built to protect the city from buccaneers and pirates in the 17th century, it originally featured 2,560 m (8,400 ft) of fortifications--of which only 500 m (1,640 ft) remain. Walk along the top of the wall, gaining access to views of the city from above. Along the way, you'll see eight bastions and two forts, including multiple museums providing insight into the history of the city.
