Najväčšia pevnosť v strednej európe a možná aj v európe a my to nevieme využiť. Je pravda, že sa toho už veľa zmenilo a je vidieť prácu čo tu odviedli - klubúk dolu pred ich prácou. Vadia a špatia v tom pevnostnom systéme všetky firmy a súkromné bývania. Toto by tu nemalo čo robiť. Mali by sa páni z mesta zamyslieť či to tam patrí !!!!???? Videl som už aj iné pevnosti podobné v Komárne ale neboli rozpredané. Celý pevnostný systém by mohol byť zlatou baňou pre mesto. Turisti radi vidia históriu a prinesú peniaze a pre miestnych prácu, len to treba s rozumom využiť.

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.
