Avila & Segovia Tour from Madrid

Avila & Segovia Tour from Madrid

Spend a day on this small group tour exploring the historical significance of two very interesting Spanish cities - Avila and Segovia.

Avila is a wonderful example of a fortified city. It's one of the oldest cities in Spain, surrounded by the very well preserved medieval walls from the 11th century.

The old quarters hold an important number of Romanesque Churches, Gothic Palaces and its 12th century Cathedral, the last fortified Gothic one built in Spain. The city is also the birthplace of St. Therese, the source of the Spanish Catholic mysticism.

Your tour will visit the outskirts of the Cathedral, the Romanesque Basilica of San Vicente, Mayor Square and a take a brief walk through its old streets to see the Convent of St. Therese.

Next stop is the city of Segovia, rich in historical monuments. This old Roman city still preserves the magnificent Roman Aqueduct from the time of Emperor Augustus. With an elegant Cathedral and its Alcazar fortress, it has the most spectacular castle in Spain.

Both towns, Avila and Segovia, are "Heritage of Mankind" cities.

For lunch, you may choose to include the regular or gastronomic (gourmet) menu...or have lunch "on your own."
