Dubbelt så många gäster än va de lovat vid bokning. Inte så bra planering av sällskapen i de olika rummen. Dålig uppmärksamhet vid servering av dricka.

Amazing hotel and restaurant in a genuine castle. Some of the rooms makes you think you moved back in time to the 18th century. Superb menu in the restaurant. Cosy common areas with antiquities and fine view over the Vättern lake.

It is a very nice castle, but there is not very much to see. They don't really serve people coming by as it is more of a hotel.

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.
