Back to Ávila

I was sent back to Ávila on tour last week and had another brilliant time. I was there from Monday afternoon until Wednesday. I’ve now been to Ávila a fair few times so didn’t feel the need to go into the Cathedral again but I did walk around the walls – I didn’t realise you could actually go up and walk along the walls themselves, so this was a lovely surprise!

Anyway, I took some lovely pictures on my afternoon and evening strolls, so enjoy!

The full walls can be seen in the picture above. To read more about the walls, see my last post on Ávila – here.

A shop window in a plaza, it is full of traditional sweet treats.

I went on a early evening stroll on the Tuesday evening and watched the sunset which was gorgeous. Here are a few pictures from that evening!

Plaza del Mercado Chico

I saw the two figures above ‘sitting’ outside a restaurant whilst I was having a wander. I thought they were very funny. The restaurant was shut so I couldn’t see if the restaurant was themed inside as well.

I love this picture. I love that I managed to catch a bird flying past as well as the view!

I noticed the stork in the tree as I was heading back to the hotel. I was so pleased it didn’t fly away before I got this picture!

I love sunsets! I stood for a while waiting for the sun to disappear behind the mountains. I was happy that I managed to get the walls of Ávila in too!

I hope you enjoyed my photos, let me know in the comments below!
