Avila, a World Heritage monument, is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Spain. It is just nearby Madrid – sometimes it is called the City of Saints and Stones. You might not believe how amazing it is!!! You can see all around the town, the view is beautiful and it’s also a great place to take pictures. It’s too hot while we were walking on the way around but it’s definitely worth it to buy the 4.50€ ticket and spend some time up on the wall.
The building of this surrounding walls of the city started in 1090- there are 82 semicircular towers and 9 gates.
We didn’t access some part as the walls as they were closed for being rebuilt but it was well worth taking a walk around them – they’re very impressive.
