Valley Ambles and Sierra de Avila
The towns and villages nestling in the Amblés Valley are dotted around the lands that surround Ávila’s provincial capital, inviting visitors to explore this area crossed by the River Adaja and scattered with woods and meadows that gradually lead up to the Ávila Mountain Range. There the rocky outcrops stand out against the lush green tones of the natural landscapes.
Both the Amblés Valley and Ávila Mountain Range are the site of castles, chapels, churches and archaeological sites, revealing the rich built and environmental heritage of these lands.
