Avattu vuonna 1520, kuten Google sanoo. Upea keskiaikainen kivikirkko.

Upea kirkko, muistakaa kunnioittaa vainajia kun kävelette hautausmaalla. Sijainti todella hieno.

Muodostan tämänhetkisen näkemykseni ihan ulkopuolen perusteella. Jälleen kerran kaunis, keskiaikainen kivikirkko, joka tietojen mukaan on viimeinen Hämeeseen rakennettu keskiaikainen kivikirkko. Kirkko on valmistunut 1520, ja rakennuttajana pidetään Åke Tottia. Kirkkoa on laajennettu ristikirkoksi 1800-luvulla. Kellotapuli on valmistunut 1785. Kirkon hautausmaalla on useiden aatelissukujen hautapaikkoja.

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.
