The Walls of Akko

Most impressive city walls I've ever see. They were build and rebuilt by a number of rules throughout the centuries (Crusaders, Ottoman Empire, & others). The walls protected the city throughout history and they were last used when they stopped Napoleon's military campaign after he concurred Egypt and decided to march up the Israeli coast line. The campaigned was abandoned and he returned to France and continued to make history.
