Walls of Ávila
(172)
The walls are the monument that best identifies Ávila . Built throughout the 12th century, they have a perimeter of 2.5 KM. You can follow them along the outside of the city, discovering the nine entrances called:del Alcázar, Peso de la Harina, San Vicente, el Mariscal, del Carmen, San Segundo, de la Malaventura, de la Santa or Montrenergo, del Rastro). Following the perimeter of the walls from the outside lets us ee how they were built according to the terrain. They’re taller in the flat areas and lower in the areas that would be more troublesome for possible attackers. Remember that you can climb up to the top of the walls and walk around the city. Take the time to absorb the views of both the urban city center and the nature to the distance. You can access the top of the walls from three points: the house of the CArnicería, the Puerta del Alcázar, or from the Arc of Carmen). There’s a magnificent view of the city and the walls from Cuatro Postes.

Door of the Alcázar or Mercado Grande
(11)
The Puerta del Alcázar, you could say, is the main and most important door in the walls of Avila. It is very easy to identify and locate as there is no other door that is accompanied by two large towers joined by a kind of footbridge. Specifically in the Puerta del Alcázar de Ávila has one element like other walls, the battlements, since in 1907 the architect Repullés conducted a restoration by adding the battlements. It is believed to imitate the other San Vicente door, as the door of San Vicente was built much more robustly and gave protection - other than just natural protection. Keep in mind that the walls of Avila include 9 gateways, some of the most important are: La Puerta de San Vicente, the Puerta del Rastro, the Gate of the Loyal or Flour Weight Gate or Ventura Poor Gate or Poor Said.
