The journey up the walls takes me to new heights as Avila shows me her true colours. Huddled below are several pink, white and red houses looking petite as the walls wrap them in their folds. There are several routes and I begin at the Puerta Del Carmen, or the Gate of Carmen, that takes its name from a Carmelite convent attached to the walls. Looking down we see palaces and cathedrals dot the landscape. The Cathedral, built in medieval times, is a Gothic monument. It was also a fortress, where the apse is a turret, and forms a part of the city walls. less
