Activity Details

Unravel centuries of history visiting two of Spain’s oldest cities, where just by witnessing the majestic and well preserved Walls of Avila, and the monumental Roman Aqueduct of Segovia, will be worth the experience, and many other attractions on these two World Heritage Sites granted by UNESCO.

Avila is one of the oldest cities in Spain, with its greatly preserved walls from the eleventh century.

These walls, around the ancient city, give Avila the appearance of a castle town, and make it one of the greatest examples of a fortified medieval city.

In Avila, there are numerous Romanesque churches, Gothic palaces, and the Cathedral of Avila, from the twelfth century also fortified.

The city is the birthplace of St. Teresa, representative of the Spanish Catholic mysticism.

You will visit the exterior of the Cathedral, the Romanesque Basilica of San Vicente, Plaza Mayor, and go along the Teresian route, through the San Juan Bautista Church, San Juan de la Cruz Square, and to the Convent and House of Santa Teresa.

From Avila, you will continue on to Segovia, a town that is very rich in historical monuments, highlighting the majestic Roman aqueduct from the time of Augustus. One of the best preserved ancient monuments left on the Iberian Peninsula.

You will see the Gothic Cathedral, which was the last built in Spain of this style, and the Alcazar of the XII century, ancient fortified residence of the kings of Castile.

The Segovia Alcazar, is a spectacular building that dominates the Castilian landscape.

This building, started as an Arab fort, which itself was built on Roman ruins, that once were used, also as fortifications.

Both towns, Avila and Segovia, are World Heritage Cities.
