  • Nocturnal view of Avila's city walls illuminated

From a distance you can see the unmistakable symbol of Avila: its walls, with their 82 semicircular towers. Within them you'll find a World Heritage city which is perfect for exploring on foot.Read more...

What to see Avila has one of the best conserved walled cities in Europe. We recommend climbing to the top of any of the sections of wall open to visitors (Puerta Alcázar, Carnicerías or Puente Adaja) where you'll be rewarded with exceptional views. Once inside the historic centre, a gentle walk will take you to a series of churches and Renaissance palaces. Interesting places to linger? The squares of the cathedral and Plaza de los Dávila. An interesting fact: throughout its history, Avila has been the home of famous Spanish mystics such as Santa Teresa de Jesús. You'll find monuments and statues in homage to them. Beyond the walls we recommend seeing its churches and the viewing point of Los Cuatro Postes. You may also enjoy a visit to its Oriental Museum. If you'd like to have it explained by an expert, the tourist offices can give you information on guided and dramatised visits. What's more, bear in mind that Avila has been named European Access City. Gastronomy The local gastronomy is excellent. Try the veal steak from Avila or the kidney beans from El Barco de Ávila. And for dessert, one of the most typical sweets in the city, the 'yemas de Santa Teresa' (made with eggs and sugar).
