Castello splendido, conservato in maniera eccellente. L'ingresso è libero con una piccola offerta di 2€ a persona a sostegno del FAI. Il castello, una volta entrati dal cancello, si estende su un grande promontorio. Si possono ammirare i resti delle costruzioni interne alle mura e ci sono tavoli per chi volesse sedersi e mangiare qualcosa. Panorama bellissimo che domina Sondrio. Suggestivo anche alla sera tutto illuminato!

Castle owned by Fai (Italian environmental fund), Located in a very panoramic position, it dominates the underlying city of Sondrio and offers a unique view of the Valtellina. Immersed in the vineyards, it can be reached via the wine route. Recommended

Beautiful FAI site. The cuisine is also excellent with high quality dishes and excellent wines. Average prices justified by the products.

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.
