Lucius


The inscription on the wall to the right is Lucius Aelius Urbicus' grave stone (200 AD) at the upper part of the Pfalzgasse on Lindenhof hill. Really. The city is that old. Everything else you see in this pic? The medieval stuff? Modern history. :-)


That's the Church of St. Peter (now Evangelical Reformed) in the background sporting the largest church clock in Europe. A church has stood at that spot since at least the 8th or 9th century.

BTW, check out the steps to the left of the street. Betcha the residents here appreciate this in the winter and on days when those cobblestones are slick with rain.
