Ávila is a hill town at 1131 meters altitude, on the banks of the Adaja River. From far away you can see the massive walls with dozens of defense towers – best preserved from all over Spain. The walls of Ávila have been declared a National Monument in 1884. The old town with all the churches inside and outside the fortification are UNESCO patrimony since 1985.

The old Citadel of Trier has a glorious past. Built in the year 16 BC, it became a big commercial center and then, at the end of the 3rd Century, it was considered a second Rome of the Roman Empire.
