This will probably be my last update in Carife. I just wanted to show off the new bell tower I put in Carife. The other one seemed to stand out a little too much... this one I think goes well with the design of the cathedral. Tell me... which do you prefer?

Above: The famous Alcázar in Calvario. It is often considered the most popular landmark on the island, with very busy train services from Carife.

Above: A small street in Carife, Calle Formentera, located near the beach. This street has recently become a great place to rent an apartment - that is, if you're willing to fork out cash. Although if you're a wealthy tourist looking for something to brag about, an apartment on a small Mediterranean island kingdom certainly will impress.

Absolutely amazing! Awesome urban planning and architecture. I've been wanting to download this type of architecture of the houses and buildings. I would like to know where I could find them. If you can please let me know, I would really appreciate it.

[b]friendly31:[/b] Most of the older medieval-style buildings are by Mickebear. The more Spanish city style buildings are on SimcityPolska.pl, in the "w2w" section it consists of the two "Iberiada" sets.

[b]hijodecordoba:[/b] Thanks! I thought this bell tower looks better as well. The other one is nice, but didn't really combine well with the cathedral.
