Itinerary

Avila
Avila

Visit Avila and Segovia, learning about the rich cultural heritage of the country and its people. Sheltered by the Sierra Gredos Mountains we find Ávila, a World Heritage City. Behind the city walls of this capital, there is a significant set of churches and Renaissance palaces that bear witness to the past wealth of the town as a textile center.

As it is the birthplace of Saint Teresa of Jesus, so it has left its mark across the city, both inside and outside the city walls, with a large number of religious buildings linked to the saint's life. The European Commission has nominated Ávila the Access City Award 2010.
