Ávila, the walled medieval city
Destinations, Castilla y León
The city of Avila, a World Heritage Site, is well known for its formidable medieval walls, an intact fortified ring around the old city.
Discover the authentic Avila by the hand of a certified private guide.
A lot to see
If you look at the city from a panoramic point facing west, Ávila can be seen like something out of a storybook or a fantasy film.
The reason for this appearance is that the city developed after this area of Spain was reconquered from the Muslim kingdoms to be a bastion against the Caliphate to the south.
Over the next few hundred years it flourished and reached its zenith in the 16th century Golden Age of Spain when Thomas de Torquemada, confessor to Queen Isabella the Catholic and the first Inquisitor General of Castile and Aragon in the 15th century, was buried here.
Pilgrims also come to Avila because of its connection with the mystical Santa Teresa, where it is possible to visit its church and convent. Let a certified guide show you Ávila as you could never have imagined.

Una gran experiencia
Increase your options
Increase your chances of choosing the best tour by asking several guides for information. You will have the opportunity to choose the experience that best suits what you are looking for. It is also important to know that not all guides have the same availability.
Provide your guide with information about you and be open about your expectations and the purpose of his visit so he can better respond to your requests.
Make sure you know all the details of the tour with your guide in advance. Knowing the length of the tour, booking hours, tour routes, places to visit, times and possible meeting points will save time and make things run smoothly.
Talk to your guide
Exchange information with your host and contact him/her at any time to inform him/her of any possible changes, and let him/her know if you are going to come how many people will be visiting.
Be sure to also contact your guide if you are delayed, and… don’t forget to charge your phone before the tour!
