No other place with so big and tasty cakes! German traditions, Kaffee und Kuchen! If you don’t have a reservation you won’t get a nice spot but it’s a nice experience.

Frankly a must see place if you're in the black forest.. takes you back and gives u a peek into how things might have been easy back when! Cafe can be crowded when the weather is nice! But still go and check it out

Very interesting history and art about the castle as well as amazing black forest cake in the cafe outside. Unless you're really hungry, I recommend one slice to share! Also, I recommend looking at all the chairs and tables in the cafe as they are all old and original!

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.
