Calton Hill is a hill located in the city center of Edinburgh, close to Princess Street. To access it you have to climb a few flights of stairs guarded by fierce lions are perfectly paved, so it is recommended for all travelers, regardless of age or physical condition. At the top, plus see a major expansion of green grass and lots of trees with benches to rest scattered, our eyes stop to contemplate the six monuments that are at the top of Calton Hill.

– Am I in Greece or in Edinburgh? Many of us think that when we first see the “Esocia National Monument.” Indeed, it was designed from the Parthenon Athens but unfortunately funds were not enough and three years after starting its construction, was left incomplete. It is a memorial to the Scottish soldiers and sailors who died in the Napoleonic Wars.
