The Walls of Ávila, Unesco Site, Ávila, Spain

The Walls of Ávila in central Spain, completed between the 11th and 14th centuries, are the city’s incredible historic feature. The walls are the image that is unmistakably associated with the town of Ávila and they were the main reason, together with the Romanesque churches, why the UNESCO included the town on its list of World Heritage Sites in 1985. This impressive defence construction has a perimeter of 2516 m, 87 turrets and 9 gates and the walls of Ávila are the best-conserved example of their kind in the world. Visit Spain.
