We drive cross through the Spanish mainland. In the morning it has 12 degrees and the tops of the mountains are sugared by snow.
Avila is located southeast of Madrid at an altitude of 1130m, the highest city in Spain. A granite town built on granite rock. But as dark as described in our guide, it doesn’t appear. The massive city wall with over 80 castellated towers and 9 gates is made of light granite. It has been completely preserved and surrounds the city center completely.
