'Scotsmen' article on its website "Lost Edinburgh", spotted by Mark Lusby. Braun and Hogenburg's 16th Century Urban Atlas shows Edinburgh, somewhat imaginatively but well walled with fine citizens of 'Scotiae Metropolis'

Ceuta - English version of Frederico Mendes Paula posted in European Walled Towns (Facebook)

Excellent post on history of Walled city and enclave of Ceuta on North Coast of Africa but as Portuguese is not a language I can read easily I have used automated translation into English to produce a .pdf version which I am making available here.
