Always the best thing to do in Avila is to walk the walls. Great views from all of the different sides. I've probably taken a dozen photos of things from up there each time we go. Brings to back centuries.

The walls of Avila are stunning and it's definitely worth the several euro cost to go up and explore them!

A special experience where history meets today during the daytime. A spectacular visual at dusk going into dark because the walls are beautifully lit!

There are two areas where you can walk along the walls of Avila and view the city and surrounding countryside. The cost is about 5 euro per adult, well worth it!

The old walls run right the way round Avila. Currently, only two sections can be accessed but the parts that are open offer terrific way to view the city - only open until 8pm. Access to the smaller open section, near the cathedral, is via...More

The walls of Avila have stood for more than eight hundred years. Built to withstand the Moors in the period of the "reconquest", they have stood defiantly ever since. By day, there is access at several points; by night, there is exquisite illumination which gives...More
