De magnifiques bâtiments qui ne sont visibles que sur demande ou lors de visites organisées. La visite de l'église abbatiale dont l'intérieur est sans artifice et donc propice au recueillement est possible sans RV. A gauche une très belle boutique propose des produits de toutes sortes fabriqués sur place. Grand parking. A Bricquebec prendre la route qui longe Peugeot à gauche en venant du centre ville. Bonne visite !

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.
