The walls (Mura) that give the park its name are the so-called New Walls, built in the 1600s to fortify city and port defences. The park also boasts several military forts built between the 17th and 18th centuries and preserves the natural habitat of the area, home to several species of protected flora and fauna.

The tour goes on to Forte Sperone, up to Forte Puin, following the so - called Butterfly trail and “antiche neviere” and back to the funicular railway station along the route to Forte Castellaccio.
The interior of the Forts cannot be visited.
