Avila is a spectacular walled town in Castile, rich in atmosphere and history. World famous for its associations with St. Teresa, Avila is an impressive and evocative destination that will appeal to anyone interested in Spanish history or in the story of the nation's revered saint.

Hotels.com has partnered with a great selection of Avila hotels and offers a sophisticated search system that allows visitors to identify their ideal choice of accommodation. Booking Avila rooms in advance ensures a relaxed stay in this elegant historic town.

What's Avila Like?

Conspicuous on the Castilian plain, Avila's 11th-century walls are a reminder of its importance in Spain's centuries of campaigning against the occupying Moors, the Reconquista. It's possible to walk stretches of the battlements getting a sense of Avila's strategic position. The city's main claim to fame though comes from being the location of the convent of St. Teresa. Her birthplace is now an ornate chapel, while the museum houses many relics associated with the saint, including one of her fingers. Avila's robust cathedral remains unfinished. Although work started in the 12th century, it is still missing a tower. The church of San Vicente is another striking religious edifice in Avila, built in the 12th century. Most of Avila's nightlife takes place in the newer districts outside the walls, with a variety of clubs, bars and music venues. Avila hotels are a great base for exploring this region of Castile.
