Learn more about the rich history of Spain with a full-day excursion to Avila and Segovia. Stroll through the birthplace of Santa Teresa de Jesus in Avila and see the Roman aqueduct of Segovia before visiting the most spectacular castle in the country, the Alcázar.
Also known as the “City of Stones and Saints,” Avila houses a large number of Romanesque-style churches and Gothic palaces. Your tour includes a visit to the Basilica of San Vicente, a cathedral, and the Convent of Santa Teresa de Jesus, where you can explore how this medieval town has become an important pilgrimage site.
Admire the medieval walls with 90 fortified towers surrounding the old city before making your way to Segovia, renowned for its Roman Aqueduct.
Listen as your guide explains how this well-preserved monument was constructed without the use of mortar and why it is considered the most important Roman civil-engineering work in Spain. Complete your tour with a look at the impressive cathedral, “the Lady of the Cathedrals,” and the city’s Moorish fortress, the Alcázar. Explore the palace and imagine the daily life of the kings who once lived here.
