  • Majestic Romanesque cathedral. Embellished interiors with special stones behind the walls

  • The relief of Fruchel, bloody stone, the choir and the retrochoir, cloister and Museum, architecture... everything has great interest to those who enjoy the art and history.

  • All of the Spanish cathedrals are precious and there will be those who think that two views view all, but Avila stands out above others by the peculiarity of their inner stone, just see it catches your attention with that reddish colour that makes it unique
