Tønder Church construction began in 1591 and completed in 1592. The oldest part is the tower which was already a part of the earlier church. The church has a rich inventory like beautifully carved 16th century pulpit. The walls bear the epitaphs of the town’s rich citizens through the ages.

Very beautiful church with lots of wood carving details. it's a must if you are around in town, you really should have a look at this. Don't forget to check out the incredible reverb you have in the entrance hall, and then you Andrew this really beautiful church. Maybe you're lucky and you can attend one of the concerts they give over here.

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.
