    Walled City of Avila

    by virtualpatrick Written Feb 25, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way to Barco de Avila, the bus stopped for a view of the walled city of Avila.

    Avila is the birthplace of Saint Teresa and the walls of the city are perfectly preserved. It's about 1 1/2 hrs from Madrid and a litle over an hour from Barco de Avila.

    Get Religious...

    by virtualpatrick Written Feb 13, 2004

    Explore various churches throughout the town and compare/contrast the architecture.

    One of the interesting I saw was an electronic candle rack. You put money in and an electronic candle lights up. I guess it poses less of a fire hazard but it will take a while for me to get used to it.

    Nature around you

    When travelling, alot of people have their checklist from their guidebooks on what to see.

    Sometimes, it's just good to set the guidebooks aside and just look at nature surrounding you.

    I love seeing the snow progressing along the slopes of the Gredos mountain range; farm animals such as donkeys, cattles, bulls, and yes there is even an ostrich farm - rumor has it that it's up for sale and Guillermo is trying find a buyer through his contacts :-)

    Walk over the bridges crossing the river

    by virtualpatrick Updated Feb 25, 2004

    to see the small church on the other side...

    These stone bridges are much more picturesque than the modern steel ones.

    The Locals

    by virtualpatrick Written Feb 13, 2004

    Some of the locals never stray too far away from where they grew up. They're always glad to see tourists visiting their town. It's entertaining for them as it is for the visitors.
