Walk Las Murallas de Avila, medieval fortifications that once guarded the city. They completely enclose Ávila, and it’s possible to walk about halfway around. Start by picking up a free audio guide at the entrance for information about the historic enclosure. Climb its towers and enjoy views of the city, mountains, and surrounding countryside. Venture outside the city to get a sense of how foreboding the walls would have been to an outsider. Nine gates allowed access to Ávila; make sure you take a photo of Puerta del Alcázar, the most imposing of these.

  • Great to experience a stroll around the walls & the phone guide was very informative. It was really amazing to see the views from the walls but also to soak up the history

  • Great historic well preserved city. The old part within the city walls with its cobbled streets. Walk around the ramparts is a good walk. We'll worth a visit.
  • I love them, walking around and being able to see far away... Every year a little bit more of the wall is restored so in the end we will be able to walk all around it!!
