Gammel Torv - Day 38

After a business meeting today in central Copenhagen I had to visit a photo store - Photographica - in Skinnergade. While walking there I passed the oldest square in Copenhagen called "Gammel Torv (Old Square)". It was established in the 13. century as part of Bishop Absalons expansion plans for Copenhagen. It was also the public execution arena for decapitation. Hanging was conducted outside the city walls.
