The ancient city of Avila, declared "Heritage of Mankind", keeps the oldest and most complete walled environment within its 1.5 mile (2.5 kilometer) circular wall, and has 90 semicircular towers dating back to the 11th century. It was the birthplace of the mystic writer Saint Teresa of Jesus (1515 - 1582) and has been a pilgrimage site ever since.

Stop at the hill of "los Cuatro Postes", where you can admire the best panoramic view of Avila. There is also a visit to the San Vicente Basilic.
