We were in our way from the airport to spend a few days in Madrid. We arrived the day before our adult kids, so had an afternoon to spend and are so glad we did. It was beautiful, uncrowded, and easy to navigate. We parked in the street, paid for the audio guide and got started. It was amazing to step back in history! We then spent time wandering nearby and eating at a sidewalk cafe. I highly recommend this side trip from Madrid! We also drove to the cross to get the view from outside and found that beautiful as well.

The place where St. Therese lived offers a glimpse of the rustic and serene city of Avila. Beautiful fortress of a city. Plenty of restaurants to dine or simply to have coffee. Suggest to go in the mornings during summertime to avoid the heat from noon to mid afternoon. An hour and a half away from Madrid, worth the trip

Get a good look from a distance so you can appreciate the incredible enclosure as a whole. The walls are incredibly well preserved. They encircle the entire old city. Truly impressive.

We tried to book this tour before leaving the US but they did not have availability during the first week of June, 2018. Viator told us to try booking upon arrival in Madrid. We called everyday but no answer. We open the Trip advisor site everyday but it indicated it was all booked. Sad I really want to see Avila. However we were able to book 4 visits in Lisbon through Trip Advisor which were all excellent.

It is really impressive, it is fun, it gives a wonderful view of region, and it was almost empty for tourists!
