#Castillo San Felipe de Barajas. It was built by the Spanish during the colonial era in 1536 and was fully completed by 1767 to defend the City from it’s many attackers. Today it serves as a breathtaking spot where you can view the city from the #fortress walls, take pictures with the numerous #cannons, and walk the eerie #tunnels where our soldiers would hide in dark areas and surprise the enemy. It serves as another reminder of just how much history is within this beautiful City we call “Patrimonio Historico de la Humanidad”. Come see for yourself and run the risk of never wanting to leave! #airbnb#vacationrental#Cartagena#patrimoniohistoricodelahumanidad#CastilloSanFelipe#Colombia
The Sungbo Eredo is reputed to be the single largest pre-colonial monument in Africa. The Eredo served a defensive purpose when it was built in 800 - 1000 AD, a period of political confrontation and consolidation in the southern Nigerian rainforest. It is said to have been inspired by the same process that led to the construction of similar walls and ditches throughout Western Nigeria, including earthworks around Ile- Ife, Ilesa and the Benin. Plus a 6,500 kilometer series of connected but separate earthworks in the neighboring Edo State.
Sungbo's Eredo has also been connected with the legend of the Queen of Sheba which is recounted in the two holy books.
