Avila

Avila VIP Tour

Madrid Experience will show you the wonders of the walled city of Avila on its bespoke VIP tour. Avila’s wall is one of Spain’s best kept medieval constructions and was declared a National Monument in 1984.

The wall itself measures over 2,000 metres and has 2,500 battlements, 9 gates, and 87 turrets. Its walls are about 12 metres high and will take you back to the time of feudal life and heroic battles.

On our VIP Tour of Avila we will closely follow in the footsteps of the mystic St Teresa, visit the extraordinary cathedral, which was started in the twelfth century and is built in the Romanesque and Gothic styles, wander around its quiet medieval streets, and given the city’s penchant for mysticism, visit its small museum of philosophy.

Shopping tips: One of Avila’s gastronomic delights are the sweets and cookies made by the various religious orders of nuns who still reside there, you can purchase some from the Convent of Santa María de Jesús and the Convent of Santa Ana.

Gastronomic delicacies: Veal T-Bone steak, judías del barco de Ávila (pinto beans and chorizo in a sauce), and a wide selection of beef stews.
