Ávila's splendid 12th-century walls rank among the world's best-preserved medieval defensive perimeters. Raised to a height of 12m between the 11th and 12th centuries, the walls stretch for 2.5km atop the remains of earlier battlements of the Muslims and Romans. They have been much restored and modified, with various Gothic and Renaissance touches and even some Roman stones re-used in the construction.
