It was the nice trip from Helsinki to Tikkakoski! Two bombers, Brewster and Me-109 ...

Nice place. The amount of information in English could be larger and directly displayed and not via some extra leaflet. But I still enjoyed the museum.

One of those technical museums in which you look (and feel) at actual exhibits and not huge signs. Made with a lot of attention to detail. Definitely a 10/10.

Interesting place with many historic and newer aircraft related to the Finnish airforce. Well worth a visit, but without young unruly children please!!

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.
