The Four Posts, Avila

(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Erected in 1556 just outside Avila, The Four Posts is a curious-looking shrine with a cross erected in the center. It marks the spot where seven-year-old Saint Teresa tried to run away to seek martyrdom in battle with the Moors. Her uncle, Francisco, stopped her and made her return to the city. The monument is set in a private field with no parking lots nearby, so you will have to walk there. You will also be rewarded with a great view of the city and its medieval walls.

  • It is the best site that can offer you the city in order to have a complete vision of the wall. Good views and tranquillity. To make pictures is ideal.

  • You can park at a little shop/cafe and grab a cup of coffee and walk over to the view point. You can see why it's called the "walled city" from here!  more »
