One of the oldest cities in the country, Avila was originally protected by walls constructed 10 centuries ago and that still stand today. This is a classic example of a fortified city. Inside you will explore its quarters and see Gothic palaces, Romanesque churches and a 12th-century cathedral. Spain’s first Gothic cathedral was built here, and is also fortified.
You’ll see the exterior of the cathedral, the Romanesque Basilica of San Vicente, and the city’s main square before taking a short walk through Avila’s ancient streets to the Convent of Saint Therese. Avila was the birth place of Saint Therese, who was important Spanish Catholic mysticism.
Segovia is our next stop. The city dates from the Roman era and has an abundance of historical monuments. You’ll see the magnificent Roman aqueduct dating from the time of Augustus, and you’ll want to take photos of the city’s elegant cathedral and the Alcazar fortress as well. The Alcazar is considered Spain’s most spectacular castle.
You’ll have time to enjoy lunch in Segovia before we return to Madrid.
