The land and culture from Castilla come to life in the city of Ávila. Its spectacular monuments are waiting for you to visit them, and see their beauty, such as the case of its cathedral, honouring the Cristo Salvador. And, of course, its famous walls. You will also find many medieval castles all over the territory.
You will also find here traces of ancient tribes that inhabited the region, such as the verraco, monuments from the Vettone culture.
Visiting Ávila is like travelling back in time, since its deeply-rooted religious tradition has left here many churches and chapels erected centuries ago, all over the province, a tradition that also left us with the presence of important historical figures such as Santa Teresa de Jesús, and the convent dedicated to honour her stay in the city.
As for the gastronomy of this province, the local lamb steak and bean dishes will give you the necessary energy to spend all day exploring the area, which you can also finish with another local delicacy: the Yemas de Santa Teresa.
The natural surroundings will allow you to explore some of the natural sights of this area, such as the huge Sierra de Gredos, or the Cuatro Postes de Ávila, which works as a viewpoint because of its height 5 m above from the ground, and from where you will have some great views of the city walls.
Now stop thinking and let's get started with rural tourism in Ávila!
