Wir waren sehr begeistert von dieser wunderschönen Holzkirche . Der Gärtner öffnete extra die Kirche und versorgte uns mit der Geschichte zur Kirche . Sie ist ganz aus Holz gebaut , besitzt eine liebevolle restaurierte Deckenmalerei und einen Innenraum der viele Kleinigkeiten dem Besucher zum staunen bringt . Der Friedhof um die Kirche ist wunderschön , klingt makaber aber er ist es wirklich , angelegt . Ein schöner Ort .

En välvårdad träkyrka från 1750-tal. Ett bra utflyktsmål för den som vill ha lite lugn och ro i en trivsam miljö.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
