Discover the history of Spain on this all day tour from Madrid. First, travel to Avila to learn about Sta Teresa de Jesus, a great mystic woman of the Catholic Church.

Avila has the most ancient and completely fortified complex in Spain. Its 2500 meter wall and its 90 fortified towers surround the old city, which houses a great part of its monumental treasures, including a large number of Romanesque-style churches, gothic palaces and a fortified cathedral of the 12th century.

Next, visit the remains of the Roman Empire – the Aqueduct of Segovia. Discover how this residence of some of the kings of Castilia preserves one of the most important medieval groups of buildings in Spain.

Finally, admire the "Lady of the Cathedrals" and view the most spectacular castle in Spain, Alcassar, before returning to Madrid.
