Удивительное место. Звуки колокольного звона завораживают. Всегда ухоженная церковь. А какая там чудесная служба! Восхитительное место!

Очень красивый старинный храм! Относится к Константинопольскому Патриархату, от которого произошло Крещение Святой Княгини Ольги , а также само Крещение всего Православного народа. Я рекомендую посещение храма для молитвы! ?

A very beautiful old temple! Refers to the Patriarchate of Constantinople, from which the Baptism of the Holy Princess Olga, as well as the Baptism of the entire Orthodox people, originated. I recommend going to the temple for prayer! ?

I was in the right place at the wrong time. I could only admire the building from the outside

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.
