LOCATION- Ávila, Spain
Avila is a beautifully historic city with a population of around 180,000 inhabitants, many located within its perfectly preserved medieval city walls, which are typical of the city’s predominant Romanesque architecture.
Avila’s proximity to Spain's capital city of Madrid (about an hour’s drive away) makes it an ideal destination for those who yearn to taste the traditional, unchanged Spain while avoiding the bustle of the big city.
Indeed, Avila within-the-walls has remained mostly unchanged since centuries ago; the atmosphere is solemn and tranquil, just as if you had gone back in time to Medieval Spain.
The city has a wealth of monuments and other architectural sites of excellence, such as the cathedral, the mother of all of them, and several smaller churches and basilicas.
