Next to the Fortifications
Like most medieval towns Lviv was heavily fortified. The internal wall with four corner towers was followed by an outer wall which had seventeen towers and was surrounded by a moat filled with water. Then came the ramparts and bastions along Valova Street, Square of Danylo Galytsky. The town had two Gateways – the Galych and Cracow Gates, and two gates – the Jesuit (near the church of the Jesuits) and Bosiatska (from the Russian “bosoi” meaning barefooted), at the end of Ruska Street which were used for communication with the Monastery of the Barefooted Carmelites.
