The Walls of Avila, Avila

(4.7/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web)
Walk The Walls of Avila, medieval fortifications that once guarded the city. They completely enclose Ávila, and it’s possible to walk about halfway around. Start by picking up a free audio guide at the entrance for information about the historic enclosure. Climb its towers and enjoy views of the city, mountains, and surrounding countryside. Venture outside the city to get a sense of how foreboding the walls would have been to an outsider. Nine gates allowed access to Ávila; make sure you take a photo of Puerta del Alcázar, the most imposing of these. Put The Walls of Avila into our Avila travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
