Catedral de Avila, built as a planned cathedral-fortress and incorporated into the city’s walls, mixes Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Constructed between the 11th and 14th centuries, the cathedral features 24 pieces depicting the life of Jesus, the Evangelists, and the Apostles hanging in the altar. Admire the collection of carvings and paintings in the vast space, the stained-glass windows that date to the 15th century, and the choir section carved out of walnut, which was completed in 1546.
