About Ávila

Enclosed by monumental city walls, complete with eight huge gates, 88 watchtowers and around two and a half thousand turrets, Ávila is an amazingly well preserved medieval fortress city. It looks like the setting for a fairytale, and the old fashioned, quite religious, atmosphere and mountainous backdrop only strengthens the magical feeling. Ávila is the perfect place to visit if you want to see something of old Spain. As well as the walls Ávila has a wonderful 12th century cathedral, which is actually built into the walls, and numerous monasteries and medieval churches. And a couple of museums. Some of the best places to stay in Ávila can be found close to the old town, but our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Ávila includes out-of-town-charmers, including a wonderful converted 17th century mill.

  • Molino de los Gamusinos is a quaint, three room country B&B converted from a 17th century mill. The atmosphere is rustic, with exposed beams and stone floors and there are beautiful gardens surrounding the property, running all the way to the Voltoya river.
