"Walled City of Avila" El Barco de Ávila Things to Do Tip by virtualpatrick

El Barco de Ávila Things to Do: 5 reviews and 5 photos


On the way to Barco de Avila, the bus stopped for a view of the walled city of Avila.

Avila is the birthplace of Saint Teresa and the walls of the city are perfectly preserved. It's about 1 1/2 hrs from Madrid and a litle over an hour from Barco de Avila.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
