St. Theresa’s Avila & Madrid

This morning we crossed the hills of La Morana, towards the city of Avila, still entirely enclosed within 11th century walls and unique in Europe. We had an opportunity to walk within the ancient city, and I enclose a few pictures of the walls and the Cathedral. Note the thickness of the outer walls and the walls of the Cathedral.  We then returned to Madrid for a sightseeing tour, repeating all that I had seen on my own. Tomorrow I continue with another tour starting with a visit to the Prado.
