Description

Do you know Ávila and Salamanca? Do not miss the cultural heritage of these two Spanish cities on a full day tour from Madrid. You will be accompanied by an expert official guide and travel in comfortable air-conditioned buses.

The tour will start at Salamanca, where you will be able to admire the Plaza Mayor (Main Square), which is characterized by its impressive baroque ornaments.

You will also have the chance to know the Cathedral of Salamanca. When we speak of the Cathedral of Salamanca in fact we are referring to two churches joined together. First, there is the old cathedral dating from the 12th-13th centuries; and then the new one from the 16th century.

Accompanied by the expert guide you will explore during 3 hours the highlights of Salamanca before leaving to Ávila.

After a stop for lunch (not included), you will be in Ávila, a city that preserves the most ancient and complete fortified complex in Spain (XI century). Its 2500 m wall and its 90 fortified towers surround the old city, which houses great part of its monumental treasure including a large number of Romanesque style churches, gothic palaces and a fortified cathedral of the XII century.

With the guide, you will enjoy a tour of the Cathedral , considered the first Gothic Cathedral in Spain and the Romanesque Basilica of San Vicente , the larger and importance of the city after the Cathedral.

You will have free time in Avila to explore on your own or have lunch (if you did not do it in Salamanca).

After this unforgettable experience in two historic cities of Spain, you will begin your return to Madrid.

    Muy bien preparada y conocedora, además de muy buen trato de parte del conductor del bus. También está bien planeado el itinerario de visitas dado el corto tiempo disponible. El único detalle es que el bus requiere más limpieza previa.
