The estate founded at the beginning of the 16th century was properly finished in the middle of the 19th century while owned by the von Oettingen family. The stately Late-Classical main building was completed on the estate in 1853, and now houses a vocational school.
At a distance of 2.5 km from the manor, you can find the family cemetery of the von Oettingens with a Neo-Gothic funeral chapel (1890s).

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.
