Catedral de Ávila, Avila

4.1
Catedral de Ávila, built as a planned cathedral-fortress and incorporated into the city’s walls, mixes Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Constructed between the 11th and 14th centuries, the cathedral features 24 pieces depicting the life of Jesus, the Evangelists, and the Apostles hanging in the altar. Admire the collection of carvings and paintings in the vast space, the stained-glass windows that date to the 15th century, and the choir section carved out of walnut, which was completed in 1546.

  • Spectacular. One of the most beautiful in Spain. Very old, super, full of history, full of secrets, exemplary architecture of an era. Not to be missed

  • To visit the Cathedral of Avila there a down payment of €5 per person. There is no free worship area, not even to visit the area of the Blessed Sacrament. The first thing that you are accessing is a business which sells all kinds of merchandising related to Santa Teresa something that gives very bad image of the Cathedral itself. Enter us leaving a very angry man because the could enter free of charge as Avila but his friend had to pay and was telling him that did not deserve the penalty.

  • From its main gate up to the colorful stained glass windows is indispensable for whoever goes to avila, in my opinion something more interesting that the Cathedral of santa teresa, fully deserves the price of admission

  • A feast for the eyes and for the soul. The color of the stone used duality is unparalleled. The golden hues that are enhanced in all corners help to enhance the shapes and geometries.
  • Beautiful on the outside. The museum is small yet interesting, if you wish to pay for maybe 1-2 hours
  • Very impressive this cathedral. A must visit, so no spoilers in my review.
  • An absolutely stunning cathedral that boasts many hundreds of years history.
  • Very unique. Entry ticket 5 Eur.
