Nádherný kostel v klidném malém městečku Ingolstadt. Kostel je obrovský a postavený ze samých cihel. Uvnitř kostela je oltář nádherně, dřevěně zdobený starým řezbářským uměním. Oltář lze obejít kolem dokola. Dost neobvyklé. Monumentální jsou i obrovské sloupy a celkově nádherná klenba kostela. Rozhodně stojí za to se jít dovnitř podívat ať jste či nejste věřící.

Bellissima Chiesa cattolica con l' interno in stile barocco, che conserva alcune bellissimi bassorilievi policromi realizzati in legno. Una bellissima raffigurazione della Madonna accoglie i fedeli e i visitatori all' ingresso

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.
