Route through Avila:
Avila is worth visiting for its Roman-style medieval wall, in perfect condition from end to end.
Go up Carretera de la Ronda Vieja, park the car and walk through the historic district. We recommend:
- Walking along the wall: you can go up and walk a section of the perimeter.
- Visiting the Basilica of San Vicente.
- Visiting the Cathedral.
- Visiting Santa Teresa de Jesús Convent.
Nearly as famous as its wall is the Chuletón (T-bone steak) de Avila. Don't leave without trying it. We recommend Restaurante Siglo Doce, next to the cathedral. It might look touristic but the price-to-quality ratio is superb (eating a " chuletón" is not cheap). A complete menu costs 24€. The "judías del barco" (beans), "sopa castellana" (Castilian soup) and, it goes without saying, "Chuletón de Avila" are excellent.
