Avila Overview

Ávila has a population of 52.000 and it is only 100kms away from Madrid so it is a perfect city for a one day trip. It is a perfect picture of medieval times, as it is sourrounded by a fairy-tale stone wall with 88 watch-towers, which is considered one of the world´s best preserved medieval defensive permiters.

Some of the must see places are Ávila’s 12th-century cathedral, The Basílica de San Vicente and El Monasterio de Santo Tomás, although many tourists come to enjoy its world famous T-bone steak (chuletón avileño) and its “Yema de Ávila” a dessert made of egg yolk and suggar.
