Old Town Route

Walk hard to forget in the old town

Unforgetable experience

Wherever you go and talk to the people you talk to and who have visited Ávila, they always remind you of the visit to the old town as something extraordinary.

What will we visit on this route?

We start from the Plaza de la Catedral and finish the tour in the same Plaza. This is a visit to stop, go shopping in old shops in the city and have a coffee with some yolks in La Flor de Castilla, or some stir-fried potatoes at snack time in an old tavern or a modern restaurant, which also there are.

ITINERARY

Cathedral Square

The Cathedral Square of Avila surprises visitors and is one of the main tourist attractions and meeting point of the people of Abuca and tourists. Their typical stone lions attract a lot of attention. It is surrounded by beautiful palaces and very unique buildings.

TOAST STREET

Formerly called street of the Ball Game. It is one of the most interesting streets of the city in which one can quietly lose. Everywhere you leave it, you will find splendid monuments.

LOPE NÚÑEZ STREET

At the end of Calle del Tostado and entering through the Puerta de San Vicente, we will cross the street of Lope Núñez, with palaces on the right and left, which will take us to the Plaza de Fuente el Sol.

PLAZA DE FUENTE EL SOL

Beautiful square of Aula. At the bottom of it stands the wall of Avila with the Marshal Arch. Los Paúles and the Bracamonte Palace, together with the impressive Mosén Rubí church, flank this unique square.

BRACAMONTE STREET

It is a section of the city that is located between Zurraquín Square and Lope Núñez Street. Narrow street that takes us from the Plaza de Fuente el Sol to the Plaza de la Victoria.

VICTORY SQUARE

The Plaza de la Victoria or Mercado Chico, as we all call it, is the center of the city’s official life for many centuries, as it was the ancient Roman forum. In her the City council is located to the north, and to the south the church of San Juan, where Santa Teresa de Jesús was baptized.

KNIGHTS STREET

Starting from the Plaza del Mercado Chico, we cross the Caballeros street that will take us to the Plazuela de la Fruta, where the impressive Palacio de los Dávila is located. If we make a stop here, we will have a coffee or an aperitif at the Posada de la Fruta, located in that square.

RAINBOW ARCH

The door of the Trail was the last to be added to the wall. Its name comes from the Paseo, although it is also known as Puerta del Grajal or Puerta de la Estrella.

TRIP WALK

It owes its name to the municipal slaughterhouse or trail that existed until the end of the 16th century in the current Plaza del Rastro. From the Paseo a beautiful landscape is contemplated and its route shows us a unique panoramic view of the Abulense wall.

STREET OF DEATH AND LIFE

Narrow and overwhelming street, as if to get lost in it. It is also known as Calle de la Cruz Vieja. It borders the walls of the Cathedral. In it you can breathe a mysterious and legendary air, where confessions of love and duels were given in ancient times in the night of the city. At the end of the street, we are again in the Plaza de la Catedral, from where we start for this very interesting tour of the main streets of Avila in its old town.
