Ávila is known for the beautiful walls that surround it. Hidden within them is a very valuable group of churches and renaissance palaces.
The symbol of the city is its protective wall, one of the best preserved medieval walls in Europe today. 2 and a half kilometres in length, its perimeter has 100 towers, 6 doors and 3 smaller entrances. The door named Los Leales, one of the main entrances to the old city, opens out into the Cathedral, a striking and imposing structure. Its bell tower leans against the city wall, constituting the densest part of the cities defences. It has both gothic and baroque elements, with its interior decorated extravagantly to the minutest detail.
We recommend a visit to the Diocesan Museum and the nooks and crannies of the medieval city, as well as the Plaza de los Dávila, with more than a dozen renaissance houses of noble lineage. Among these properties the highlights include the mansion of Los Velada, the palace of Los Valderrábano and the palace of Núñez Vela.
Ávila was the birthplace of many famous Spanish people, such as Santa Teresa de Jesús and San Juan de la Cruz. You will come across an abundance of churches and convents dispersed throughout the city. Outside of the city walls you can find the Monastery of the Incarnation. Another important building is the Basilica of Saint Vincent, which is considered the most beautiful example of Roman architecture in the city. The Church of Saint Peter is one of the oldest in the city.
