    The Most Stunning Cliff-Side Towns And Villages

    Cities built on cliffs present us with a striking contrast between the natural world and the structures that we build to challenge and overcome it. These photos capture stunning views of some of the most epic cliff-side cities in the world.
    Many cities or dwellings could have been built on cliffs for a variety of different reasons, but this was most often done with defensive advantages in mind. A cliff-side city overlooking a sea passage has a superior command of the surrounding waters and is virtually impossible to assault from the water. Cities on steep hills, on the other hand, might have been built there to defend from land-based aggressors or because of their proximity to important landmarks like rivers.
