4º - Concurso

Hi guys,
those who are going to participate in the contest, please look at this information regarding your choice: and read it... http://www.boe.es/diario_boe/txt.php?id=BOE-A-2010-12167

If you choose the walls, you're choosing a categoría de Conjunto Histórico and it includes all inside the walls... I'm writing to the organisers to ask if possible choosing just the walls, ok?

I think it would be easier a single monument than a full Conjunto Histórico, but if you are going to work veryyyy hard, it's ok.
