  • Even if it is a little away from the tourist circuit outside the city wall, walk 15 minutes and see it is worth. The Real Monasterio de Santo Tomás is Gothic, its altarpiece was begun by Pedro Berruguete and under it is the grave of the infante Don Juan, only son of the Catholic monarchs. Stresses its choir, located on an upper floor and with seats for Queen Isabella of Castile and King Fernando de Aragón. Next to the monastery, the Palace of the Catholic Kings, is located in the cloister of the Kings is an excellent Museum of Oriental art. There is also the Museum of natural sciences he personally has given me wrong roll seeing animals dissected with aggressive attitude. I get bad only to remember it. Entry costs € 4 per person, including audioguide. If you are going to visit Avila two days, I recommend the Visitavila tourist card for €15, which gives access to 11 monuments (with entering the wall, Cathedral, Basilica of San Vicente and at this monastery of Santo Tomás already have it redemption).

  • The Real Monasterio de Santo Tomás in his third cloister, the former Summer Palace of the Kings Catholic, a Museum of oriental art. It is a monastery of the Dominican order, lies outside the city walls. It is worth visiting it.

  • We went to this monastery (had spent many times in front of it) and it's very nice, its style is Gothic, are buried there Juan de Aragón and Tomás de Torquemada. It has a Museum and a beautiful cloister.
