This free tour is the perfect option to start getting to know the main monuments and history of the famous walled city of Ávila, declared a World Heritage Site .

You will experience a regression to those bygone times of the Middle Ages, you will know the most emblematic places , the stories that surround them and the secrets of their stones, because you are in the city of saints and songs!
