What's Avila Like?

Avila is a city that proudly shows off its past wealth and artistic history. The medieval walls and architecture dominate the landscape and give this city a mythical air. The large cathedral combines both a Romanesque and Gothic style. Other examples of interesting architecture include the Basilica of San Vincent, the Convent of Saint Joseph, and the Palace of Don Diego del Aguila. Avila's celebration of Holy Week is a good time to witness the city in full pageantry. Considered the birthplace of Saint Teresa of Jesus, religious traditions still run deep here. Additionally, there are several museums to take in as well as a busy student life with two universities. From Cuatro Postes, one can get an even better idea of how magnificent the entire city looks spread out. Avila hotels encompass all of this city's unique wonders and make for a memorable stay.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Avila

Knowing some Spanish is definitely recommended when getting around Avila. However, English can be found in places that cater to the modern universities. Although the summer months are mild, winter here is cold with freezing winds sweeping in. One of the best examples of Avila's luxurious past is in the cuisine. There are plenty of wonderful dishes with roasted pork and lamb. Chuletón de Avila is a famous steak made of a black cow native to the region. Judías del Barco (white Barco beans with chorizo, sausage and other pork parts) is also popular. A particular specialty of the region is Yemas de Santa Teresa, a sugared egg yolk pastry.
