O Nosso Conselho
Let’s start off with the basics. Edinburgh is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Here are a couple of quotes about this glorious historic town: “The most beautiful of all the capitals of Europe.” Sir John Betjeman. “Probably the most beautiful city we have ever seen.” The Black Eyed Peas. If Sir John Betjeman, one of Britain’s great post war poets, and the Black Eyed Peas agree about Edinburgh, then who are we to disagree?
It is a city renowned for its wealth of gothic architecture (over 4,500 listed buildings) and this is nowhere more evident than in the Old Town, a treasure trove of style, which includes the medieval fortress of Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, as well as plenty of squares, nooks and crannies to get lost in.
The “New Town”, in turn, dates back to the 18th century and is largely held in neoclassical design and includes many Georgian terraces.
It is in part this combination of medieval architecture and neoclassical design that gives Edinburgh such a unique character.
