This one day trip takes us back in time to the roman and medieval Castile. Take a walk around the historic quarters and admire Avila's stunning city walls and the Segovia's roman aqueduct.
Avila's old town features a great number of Romanesque churches, Gothic palaces and a fortified 12th century Cathedral. The city is completely circled by its Romanesque city walls, built on the 11th century. With a perimeter over 8000 feet and sporting 87 fortified towers and 9 gates, it's probably the best preserved walled town in Europe
Ávila is home to the prominent Christian mystic and author, Teresa of Jesus, and its perfectly preserved historic quarter was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1985.
While in Ávila we'll visit the Saint Teresa Museum and Convent, as well as Saint Vicente. We'll also take a walk around the old town, to watch the outside of the Cathedral and the Old Market Square.
Once we finish the visit to Ávila we'll head back to the bus and then to Segovia.
Segovia's highlight is its Roman Aqueduct: a massive engineering work, made of granite without mortar, its 167 arches reaching over 90 feet high. Even today it's a shocking view.
The city was home to several Castilian Kings and boasts a well-preserved historic quarter which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site back in 1985.
As we arrive Segovia we'll have lunch on our own or at a typical restaurant, as per the booked tariff.
Once we're done with lunch, we'll continue the visit to the Aqueduct, and then we'll walk up to the old so that we can visit the Gothic Cathedral, which is considered to be “the Lady of the Cathedrals” due to its elegance. We'll also visit the Alcázar, perched on a rock, overseeing the Castilian plains, it's probably the most magical and spectacular castle in Spain.
The tour is about 9 hours long, therefore we recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
