Enjoy a very entertaining day visiting Avila and Segovia, two cities rich in history. The first stop on our tour will be in Avila, a city that preserves the most ancient and complete fortified complex in Spain (XI century). Its 2500 m wall and its 90 fortified towers surround the old city, which houses great part of its monumental treasure including a large number of Romanesque style churches, gothic palaces and a fortified cathedral of the XII century. We will visit the Convent and Museum of Teresa de Jesús, the Cathedral (the outside), the Plaza Mayor and the Basilica of San Vicente. After lunch (*) we continue to Segovia, famous for its well-preserved Roman aqueduct, which is 16 km long. Home of some of the kings of Castile, this city preserves one of the most important medieval group of buildings in Spain. Due to its elegance, the Cathedral of Segovia is considered to be “the Lady of the Cathedrals”, and the Alcázar is the most spectacular castle in the country. We will see the Aqueduct, the Cathedral and the Alcázar. (*) Optional Gastronomic lunch.
