Ávila is one of the finest remnants of Europe's medieval era and a World Heritage site. It is the oldest and most complete walled city in Europe. The city walls are symbolical of the city. Ávila lies a short distance to the west of Madrid.

Ávila is a city of contrasts, the hustle and bustle of the mercado (market) contrasts with the quiet of the temples, churches and convents. The beautiful palaces and the impressive cathedral provide Ávila's character and identity, Avila also is renowned for being the home of St. Teresa of Avila.

Segovia, founded as a Roman pleasure resort, became a religious centre and seat of the Castilian court. Through the ages it has been a melting pot of Roman, Arabic, Jewish and Christian cultures. Its steep streets lined with quaint houses built of granite and many monuments remind one of its long and notable history.

The great aqueduct is the crowning glory of Segovia. 2,000 years on it is still in perfect working condition, bringing potable water to Segovia.
