Begin the day with a visit to Avila, a city that is completely encircled by 11th century walls and resembles a great castle more than a city. Avila has a number of Romanesque Churches, Gothic-styled Palaces and a fortified 12th century Cathedral, and was also the birthplace of St. Teresa of Jesus, a prominent Spanish mystic and Roman Catholic saint. On the tour, visit the outside of the Cathedral, San Vicente Basilica, St. Teresa Convent, and stop at Cerro de Los Cuatro Postes to admire one of the best views of the city. Depart Avila for Segovia, a city that once was an important military outpost in Roman times, evidenced by its magnificent Aqueduct, and served as a summer residence for some of Castille's kings. Segovia maintains one of the most remarkable complexes of medieval structures in all of Spain. Enjoy the included lunch at a local restaurant that will have characteristic Segovian fare, such as La Granja white beans, roast pork, and dessert (vegetarian and gluten-free options available). After lunch, enjoy a city tour, which includes the "Queen of Cathedrals", nicknamed for its grace and style and is the last Gothic Cathedral* built in Spain. Lastly, view the Alcázar, the most spectacular Moorish-era castle in the country. *During special events at the Cathedral, another museum will be visited.
Departs at 9:00 am. Pick-up and drop-off from Plaza de Oriente, 8. Approximate tour duration is 10 hours.

Our unguided (no tour manager) trip to Barcelona was wonderful! My wife and I both had some trepidation before going. We had not traveled without a guided format in decades; that forced us to do our homework and plan out our days. We were able to spend more time at the sites that most interested us. We ate at hole in the wall restaurants that knocked our socks off. We went beyond our comfort level, and had an experience we wont forget. Thank you Gate 1!David S. Agoura Hills, CA
My trip was fabulous! Madrid and Barcelona - beautiful and historic. Looking forward to plan my next trip. Thank you Gate1.Kim T. S Richmond HL, NY
The trip was amazing value. Truly, we can't figure out the math to understand how you can offer such a trip for that cost. The hotel was very nice, in an excellent location and we all had a wonderful time. We will be on Gate 1 again in May and have converted our friends as well.Willow S. Eastham, MA
