The City and Walls of Genoa

Medieval GenoaI’ve loaded up another gazetteer page for the Mythic Genoa section, this time detailing the basic city features and the stout medieval walls built by Frederick Barbarossa.

Eventually I plan to commission (from Sean Macdonald over at Fantasy Cartography) a detailed map of medieval Genoa based on the various anachronistic maps I’ve found on the web and some sketches I’ve made based on my research, as I really like the maps of Sark and Rome he did for Tales of Power.

Of course, I need to flesh out more detail about the actual commune first… there’s still the Lanterna (lighthouse), the leper colony at Capo Fari and some of the notable noble residences to work on but I’m hoping to fill in the spaces soon.
