    Walking along the walls is an excellent way to get another perspective of Avila and a chance to walk on the restored and maintained visa that runs most of the way around the city. (The walls continue but you cannot walk the entire way around to my knowledge.) If you chose not to walk the walls, you can still get a very good sense of the city and take some amazing pictures of them. The only other European city in which I have ever seen anything this intact is in Carcassonne in southern France. Take advantage!

    This is one of those European churches which has been enlarged and changed so many time over hundreds, actually, over 1000 years and now has elements that span so many different eras. For me, the most impressive element was not even the building itself but rather the ornate tomb which includes intricately carved and colored figures. It was a bit annoying that everything in Avila required a separate ticket. I did not mind at all paying for the upkeep of these treasures but a package ticket would have been nice.

    Located in the medieval city of Ávila (Unesco Heritage Site), it is one of the oldest Cathedrals built in Spain. Its construction is estimated to be dated back to the 1000’s.

    An excellent spot to view all the southern part of the Wall/City.

    There's a few free parking spots if you're lucky.

    I hiked here in 2005 with friends from Madrid.
    We hiked to a lake where we swam and sunbathed.
    I loved the goats, and the scenery was spectacular.

    Church here has a baroque facade. Inside there are beautiful stained glass windows . Outside is that statue of St. Therese near the entrance . Beside is a small souvenir gift shop. You can see a relic of the saint as well , but photography is strictly not allowed.

    We just dropped by on our last day in Avila, to look for gifts in the gift store, but we were so glad we came. This is a lovely, quiet place of prayer & museum that helps you get a sense for how St. Teresa lived. During her lifetime she was frustrated with how unspiritual this monastery was, but clearly it has become a true place of prayer. The docent was really kind & gave us a tour in Spanish that we fumbled to understand with Google translate—-but her kindness & love forGod spoke louder than words. The young women volunteering in the gift shop also radiated God’s love. If you are hoping to connect with the legacy of St. Teresa, this is a wonderful place to visit—-far better than the other Teresian shrine inside the city.

    Park the car and get out and walk, it is the only way to see the old town. Lots of little squares and narrow streets to navigate. There are a couple of hotels near the cathedral that should be visited, nothing to look at from the outside but beautiful cloistered galleries on different levels surrounding dining rooms. There is a Plaza Mayor of sorts but we felt it was a little soulless.

    Here you could understand why the bees are fundamental for our lives!
    It is an instructive talk about bees and in the end you can interact with them.

    This is, as the title of my review suggests, a very beautiful plaza in the old town. It would be an ideal place to sit out with a copa, but, unfortunately, the plaza appears to be residential, with only the museum (open weekends and bank holidays only) open to the public. Bring your camera.

    Only open Sat & Sunday & we visited on a Thursday. Nil signage in English neither here or anywhere in the town. Look at the history of this Castle & Isobel the Catholic Queen on Wikipedia-fascinating.
    Apparently this Castle was used/possibly restored for a series about Isobel on Spanish TV.
    Don't think there is much inside but the external views and photos made the detour off the autovia well worthwhile.
