I have spent a couple of weeks in this hotel and was really peaceful and relaxing, all the waiters were really kind and also the hotel restaurant has really good food.

Fin atmosfär men tyvärr alldeles för dålig service. Personalen gör så gott de kan men är troligen för underbemannade.

Spännande övernattning, härlig miljö och suverän mat. Kan verkligen rekommenderas.

Riktigt bra på nästan alla sätt och vis. En slottsweekend som verkligen rekommenderas. Afternoon tea, bastu/jacuzzi, fukostbuffén: mycket bra. Fantastiskt utbud på afternoon tea... 4-rätters middag var bra, men huvudrätten (hjort med ugnsbakad potatis) var en besvikelse. Fint kött men smaklösa tillbehör. Middagen lyftes dock av övriga rätter och ostar från buffé. Servicen kan bli klart bättre. Rummet var fint, men inte i toppskick. Mycket fina omgivningar! Promenad rekommenderas, men en löprunda innan frukosten rekommenderas ännu mer!

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.
