Let's go travel and see the world again! It seems that I was quite busy traveling for the past weeks. Glad that I am back now. I was actually in Spain for three weeks. I posted in my other travel blog last month that I will be making some sidetrips when I am in Madrid. Yes, I did it! It was a perfect timing because some new friends I met in Spain's capital city were also planning to visit Avila that time.
In short, I was in Avila. I bought a travel book about Spain when I visited this country last December 2011. One of the cities featured in the book is Avila. Since then, I told myself that one day I will visit this place also. It did came true and I was in Avila.
Avila is an ancient city which is famous for its beautifully preserved medieval walls. The 11th century walls are over 2.5 kilometers long, over 3 meters thick and 12 meters high. It has 88 turrets at regular intervals and said to have nice gateways. I am trying to remember how many gateways we passed when we there there. I guessed 4 to 5 gateways.
One of the main sights to see in this city is the Cathedral.
It was so far a wonderful trip I had with friends in Avila.
