Photographer's Note

The Stradum or, square is a wide main street of the walled city and going from the Pile Gate to the port.

The street was created in the twelfth century, when the channel separating the island from the mainland was flooded. In the fifteenth century it was paved and after the earthquake of 1667 completely rebuilt. Architectural homogeneity, is that when it was rebuilt, the same height for all buildings and similar facades are respected, always allocating the ground floor premises.

--------------------------------------------

La plaza Stradum, es una amplia calle principal, de la ciudad amurallada y que va desde la Puerta de Pile hasta el puerto.

La calle se cre en el siglo XII, cuando se aneg el canal que separaba la isla de tierra firme. En el siglo XV fue pavimentada y tras el terremoto de 1667 reconstruida por completo. Su homogeneidad arquitectonica, se debe a que cuando se reconstruy, se respet la misma altura para todos los edificios y unas fachadas similares, siempre destinando la planta baja a locales comerciales.
