Our journey begins with a stop at Los Cuatro Postes hill to admire the panoramic views of the city of Ávila, dotted with church towers and Gothic palaces and declared "World Heritage" by UNESCO. The city of Ávila has very ancient walls, dating from the eleventh century and they surround the whole city.
There are 90 fortified towers and circular turrets, just like in the old tales. Ávila is a very important pilgrimage site, as it is the birthplace of the writer Santa Teresa de Jesús (1515 -1582). We will wander through the old city, contemplating the amazing variety of churches and the Romanesque and Gothic styles of Ávila.
The tour will also take us to the Basilica of San Vicente, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture and home to some of the most priceless examples of Romanesque sculpture in Spain. Finally, we will visit the Cathedral of Ávila with its recognizable design, alabaster tombs and chapels, a perfect combination of Gothic and Romanesque styles.
