About the tour

The World Heritage town of Ávila has often been referred as the town of Stones and Saints (“Cantos y Santos”). The reason, the innumerable religious (and also non religious) buildings built in granite stone and beautiful sandstone. Ávila’s famous wall, also built in stone, encloses the old town but Ávila is as beautiful inside as outside of the wall. In our tour we will walk along the East face of the wall from outside. We will see the 2 most important and imposing Gates, the area where the old roman ‘necrópolis’ or cemetery used to be and 3 of the most well known and beloved churches in town: San Pedro, San Salvador (the cathedral) and San Vicente, this last one a masterpiece of the Romanesque-Gothic and also World Heritage by UNESCO. This tour combines very well with any of my other walks in Ávila. Come walk with me! I will make sure you do not trip on any stone...

HIgh quality tour - video, guiding, and very soothing voice. However, audio was a little too soft / low on volume... can afford to turn the mic up a little~~ Would be interested in other tours by Jesús~
