This patio is in the interior of the City Hall and is free to see. There were something like 14 Palaces in Avila and this was converted to City Hall.

I liked this place. The exhibits were good and I could get an English version. The palace is well preserved and very worth taking the step back in time.

One of the most prominent plateresque/renaissance palaces of the city is positioned on Calle Lope Nunez, a street that leads into the old town from the Gate of San Vicente. Construction of granite ashlar work was ordered by noble Suero del Aguila in 1521 and was finished in 1534. Building is flanked by two very low towers which show that it was used for defence purposes of the sensitive north-eastern area of the city. It was designated a National Monument in 1976 and is currently used as the UNESCO, Municipal Archive and the Department of Heritage and Tourism. Mentioned institutions use its interior halls and rooms but everyday passengers can visit two floored cloister, with arcades decorated with flowers and coats of arms from the various lineages of Avila. Entrance is free and during my visit there was a modern art exibition.

Nice location, it depends which exposition is there in order to rate it. When we were there a nice one regarding Sta.Teresa, it closes at 8pm, so pretty useful to finish the day.

The entrance of to the museum was free which showed the Celts in Spain. I was rather surprised that they had English version so that was really good. What was missing were exhibits of the artefacts, they had only a few but most of them were just pictures.

Was here for a banquet; beautiful and celubrious. Well worth a visit to experience a piece of living history.

The house with the name of “Palacio de los Verdugo” in the city of Ávila dates from the year 1531. You will find it in the “Calle de López Núñez”.
The façade is almost completely composed of flat stones, and in a defensive way, this without the existence of low windows, and two towers on each side.
A well maintained building but weird to see, certainly with his statue from a stone bull??? In the corner.
