Amazing location with good parking and a lot of cool things to explore. Beautiful scenery and buildings. I think young kids interested in building would love it. Also -visit the little restaurant/cafe across the street from the entrance

Great historical destination not too far from Budapest. Other side of the Danube river is Slovakia

Most likely I would've looked at the experience in another way if I hadn't visited Prevnost Komarno the other day. There is no guidance. If there is, then it's probably optional. This place definitely has a history but you don't get to know anything about it. You get a small book but it tells you nothing. The place itself is like the other fortress.

Huge place. it takes at least an hour, if you want to take the full tour. Descriptions are in Hungarian, English, German and slovak.

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.
