Avila, a World Heritage Site, rises under the shelter of the Gredos Sierra. Behind the walls of this capital of Castile-León, a priceless compound is concealed, made up of Renaissance churches and palaces: a silent witness to the bygone splendour of the city when it was a textile power.
Being the birthplace of Santa Teresa de Jesús, the city has a number of religious buildings - inside and outside the walled enclosure - related to the life of the mystic.
Excellent roasts and the famous veal T-bone steak are only a few of the dishes that make up the amazing cuisine of this province, without playing down the wonderful cakes and pastries, especially the renowned "yemas de Santa Teresa" (a sweet made with egg yolk and sugar).
