The peaceful English island of Eye may not at first sight convey its true historic significance. According to the last census the town has a population of about two thousands. It is the same island that remained one of the most important strategic strongholds in the Norman era.
Some traces of the Norman era can still be appreciated as the town holds many buildings reflecting the amazing architecture of that age. Tourists, who are interested in the architectural aspect of the town, try to spend time in the town as it offers some of the rarest glimpses of ancient architecture.
One interesting instance is the Gerofian Linden House which has a striking and remarkably unique colour scheme.

St Peter and St Paul church is the true iconic building of the town, as one can see the lofty towers from anywhere in the town.

It is a fairly historic building as historians agree that it was built in the 1300s. Tourists pay visits to the church to appreciate the work of architecture and it is easy to get local guides that will elaborate the history behind each and every mystery behind the church.
