Avila

Avila is a province located in Castilla-León, a region in the north-centre of Spain divided in nine provinces (Segovia, Avila, Soria, Burgos, Palencia, Valladolid, León, Zamora and Salamanca). It's the highest capital of Spain, located at 1,117m above sea level, and surrounded by a huge wall, with 88 towers and 9 gateways. There are stairs to go up to the wall and see the city from there. When I was sitting down up there I imagined the pressure that many people felt lots of years back, while defending their city and their lives from the invaders.
