Erected in 1556 just outside Avila, The Four Posts with cross in the center is where seven-year-old Saint Teresa tried to run away to seek martyrdom in battle with the Moors. Her uncle, Francisco, stopped her and made her return to the city.(story goes).
It's located on the way in/out to Avila.
The best spot for pictures taken.

It offers a convenient place to park and snap a quick photo of Avila from afar. We stopped here just for less than 5 minutes and got back into the car due to the pouring rain.

This was built about 500 years ago over the site of an old Roman shrine and it has a certain interest, especially at night. But it is the views of the walls of Avila that make it worth the visit.

This is a short walk outside of the town but its importance to people entering the town is significant. It was a place that people blessed themselves before they entered the town so entered sin free. It also has connections to St Teresa and is marked with child footprints. Vivid to gain a great view into the walled city

I'm sure that everything is already said about this place, once its mandatory to visit, for everyone who wants to enjoy the best view over the Wall. Some of the best pictures taken in my trip ;)

This is the best place to head for views of the complete walled city of Ávila. You can walk here in about 20 minutes, crossing the old roman bridge in the process which is also well worth a visit. Visit it in the daytime and also at night. In June, I found the sun was in the best position late afternoon and go again when the city is illuminated as it is the largest illuminated monument in the world. Simply stunning. For those less able to walk to the 4 posts or with mobility issues, you can catch the tuk tuk, a little chauffeur driven carriage which holds 5 people at 5 euros per head. There is automatic commentary and the driver will impart his local knowledge as well although in Spanish which was great as we are all learning Spanish so was a great opportunity

Offers car parking and a lovely view of the city and it's walls. A walk from the city so take the car or even easier take the tourist train

Really a great little city with so much history.. Best shots of the 4 post looking back to the city walls are best taken in the afternoon as it faces east and the morning sun can be a problem

We stopped by here twice, once coming into the city from Salamanca and once for the night view of the city. It is truly an amazing spot to see the city and its lights before you, or in the afternoon, to see the the amount of people who can scramble up the very uneven steps to get their photos. Especially if a bus tour stops when you are there. A brief stay is all that is required.

Visited mid morning. Unfortunately coach loads of rude old people at the attraction, which ruined the feel of the sight. Great views of the city.
Will visit again early morning to take landscape photos before the crowds arrive!
