If most travelers who stop Fianarantsoa are motivated to walk in the narrow streets of its Old City, many do not hesitate to continue their walk by touring the most remarkable places. They are particularly attracted by the remains of the Palace of Merina governors, which has now left its place to a school. Indeed, the site has preserved the stone that was once used to beheaded convicts. But they are also fascinated by the granite wall located south of the city, which is curiously invaded by prickly pears and sisal.
