HERE'S A LITTLE SNEAK PEEK
WHAT TO EXPLORE IN ÁVILA
Ávila City Wall
This grandiose monument, which envelops the old part of Ávila, has around 2500 meters and is without a doubt one of the most visited attractions in the city. If you come to Ávila it’s impossible not to stumble upon it, but this is not why most people are stunned by it. The reason lies with the past of the city wall, which was built during the 11th century and is one of the few of it’s kind to still stand and be so well maintained. This is truly one of the many highlights of the “Walled City”.
Cuatro Postes Viewpoint
Located right outside the city walls in the north-west side of Ávila, this viewpoint is known not only by its amazing view over the city but also, by the legends attached to it. It’s said that this was the spot where Saint Teresa, a well-known figure in Ávila, and her brother where caught by their uncle while they were trying to flee the city in the hopes of becoming martyrs. The best time to visit this monument is during the sunset, so you can appreciate the all-might city walls bathed in the setting sun. Going to this viewpoint during the night is also a great idea since you’ll be able to appreciate the city illuminated by thousands of little bright lights and view the night magic of the city wall.
Even though this Cathedral started to be built in the romantic style, it was the first gothic-styled cathedral built in Spain. The monument’s main front is flanked by two towers, one of which is unfinished, making the front appear kind of like a stairway that reaches towards the sky. The building stands out from the surrounding scenery as a mighty fortress and one of its walls is actually part of the famous city wall. The inside of the Cathedral is also worth a visit so you can appreciate the intricate details, the lovely stained glass windows and the many-toned stone walls.

Lisbon is one of most beautiful cities of Europe, I live in Lisbon for a while now, but only after this Tuk Tuk tour I have been able to access the most amazing hidden places of the city. You will never get there if you take a bus or tram.
