A foodie’s paradise
Typical Ávila cuisine bears a mix of influences. Outstanding dishes include veal cutlet, roasted suckling pig and lamb, and T-bone steak, all originating from Ávila. Tuck into legendary chorizo (Spanish sausage cured with paprika), Moragueño-style chickpea stew, stuffed peppers, and patatas revolconas (mashed potatoes with bacon bits and paprika).
Ávila's most famous dessert, Yemas de Santa Teresa, is made from sugar and egg and is a must try. Torrijas, similar to French toast, is tasty too.
Ávila's old town and religious buildings are UNESCO Heritage Sites, making it a popular day trip option from Madrid. Most famous is the 17th-century Convent of Saint Teresa, which houses a relic, the saint's ring finger (complete with ring). While here, look out for the collection of carvings by Spanish sculptor Gregorio Fernández.
Outside Ávila's medieval walls and close to the Royal Palace lies the Royal Monastery of the Incarnation, where Teresa penned her mystical experiences. The relics here are hauntingly beautiful. You can also see the Basilica of San Vicente and the Church of San Pedro (the oldest in Ávila), which bear striking Romanesque elements.
