If you have the chance to watch the sunset in Avila (Spain), make sure to be on top of a hill to enjoy the view from up there. You can’t miss the hill with a ruined shed as you enter the town wall. There’s even a fat chance that you see tourists taking thousands of selfies on this hill overlooking the tiny city of Avila. 😀
Avila is a medieval town that personifies ancient Spain. At sunset, the town turns gold. Like this.
Avila is an hour and a half drive from Madrid, Spain’s capital city. Most tourists go here on a day trip from Madrid. If you’re driving here and don’t intend to stay overnight, watch the sunset and wait until it gets dark. When the lights are on, the walls are illuminated – and they look magical!
