Segovia and Avila are two of the most visited cities in Spain, seducing travelers with historic cathedrals, Roman aqueducts, and dreamy palace-fortresses. See both cities in one day, hearing fascinating commentary about each spot, without having to drive or plan an itinerary on this guided tour from Madrid. Plus, you can upgrade for a Segovian lunch with roast suckling pig.

It was made beautifully outside the outskirts of the fortress, yet another icon to be considered and be visited.

As I said the outside isn't very pretty and it is a combination of various styles from Medieval, Gothic, Romanesque and Renassaince. The inside is different. The unusual granite color of pillars was totally different than i have ever seen. I have seen colored such as in Mequita of Cordoba but not speckled. I is a very pretty church.

The Basilica of San Vicente de Ávila built outside the city walls is a masterpiece of Romanesque simplicity: a series of largely Gothic modifications in sober granite contrast with the warm sandstone of the Romanesque original. It is dedicated to Saint Vincent and his sisters Cristeta and Sabina martyrs at the beginning of the fourth century.

It is always breathtaking to visit ancient buildings like cathedrals and wonder at the skill of the masons. This is a dominant building in Avila and something the town is rightly proud of. It is a super place to visit even for the non-religious.

This church is actually outside the main city walls but be sure not to miss it. The Baroque style is quite different from the churches inside the walls and very impressive.
