Place has very nice view on the lake with fountain. But food was really bad. We had fish soup and a grilled chicken. Soup was worst of them all that I had. It was too spicy and too much vinegar in it. Chicken was just dryid out.

My favourite breakfast cafeteria. Pies and cakes are good, espesially "seenepirukas" and "kapsapirukas", "beseerull" and "linnusekook".

Lovely service and great food. Very cosy interior with a pleasant ambiance. My friend claimed he had the best cheesecake of his life at this place.

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.
