Avila information

Gastronomy and the outskirts

In any of the restaurants of the capital of Avila it is possible to unveil the excellent regional cuisine. Outstanding are the delicious roasted suckling pig and lamb , as well as the famous "chuletón de ternera", veil T-bone steak from Ávila. Both the veil and the El Barco-style haricot beans from Ávila have their own Designation of Origin. Much of the fame that baked goods from Avila enjoy are due to the delicious "yemas de Santa Teresa" (a sweet made with egg and sugar).

Within the province of Avila there are also a number of important towns, like Arévalo, a beautiful example of the Mudejar period in the region that was declared Historic-Artistic Site; Madrigal de las Altas Torres, the birthplace of Queen Isabel the Catholic; Las Navas del Marqués, with the Castle of Magalia; and finally El Barco de Ávila, graced with the outstanding Gothic church of Our Lady of Asuncion and the Castle of Valdecorneja.
