Ávila is situated in the region of Castilla y León, just an hour from Madrid. The city, although small, is rich in history, so much so that it has been recognised as a world heritage site.
Ávila is said to be one of the safest cities in Spain and sits in the cradle of “Castilian” – the official Spanish which is spoken here.
With its many tapas bars, restaurants, festivals, music events, etc. Ávila offers an experience of an absolutely authentic Spain. You will have many opportunities to interact with locals and practice your Spanish. Ávila is not overly populated with tourists and can therefore offer a flavour of the real Castilian Spain.
Ávila also has a very comfortable climate; it is fairly dry and almost always sunny, although not too hot, due to its altitude!
Furthermore, the landscape surrounding Ávila is incredible; for example, the Sierra de Gredos is truly beautiful and has a unique fauna and flora.
