Ha sido un tour por Ávila muy agradable por la forma de exponer los temas (tono y hablar sosegado que parece haber desaparecido) por la calidad técnica de su exposición no dejando ninguna pregunta sin respuesta, comentando tradiciones orales de los mayores, etc. Por último, se agradeció su andar tranquilo que, sin darte cuenta, recorrías la ciudad.
