Avila is one of Spain’s oldest cities, and surrounded by well-preserved walls dating from the 11th century, it resembles an immense castle.

What people are saying about Ávila

It was a fantastic tour!! We enjoyed everything, from the drive to each place, to the weather and each historic place, but Carlos our tour guide made it more fun and interesting! There was snow in the mountains and it was snowing by the time we got to Avila. Lots of history and just amazing to see.

Good trip. Both the medieval towns are awesome and definitely worth a visit. Carlos was a great guide with a good sense of humor. He kept giving relevant information all along the way.

Highly recommended experience for those who don't have much time and want to get to know these cities. And it's worthy, so beautiful!! The guide was great, we had a wonderful time

The guide was very good and the tour was one of the best I've ever done in my life. The place is perfect! Places I didn't even think existed

A complete and very pleasant tour, the guide is very expert and charming. Ávila and especially Segovia are treasures that cannot be missed.
