About this spot
Ávila, capital of the Spanish province of the same name, is a city in the rolling hill country northwest of Madrid. Its main monument is the imposing Walls (ramparts) of Ávila (11th-14th centuries), begun in 1090, with 80-plus crenelated, semicircular towers and 9 gates, including the arched El Alcázar, on the eastern side. Long sections atop the walls are walkable. At night, when the walls are illuminated to magical effect, you'll wonder if you've stumbled into a fairy tale.
