Like history? Like Spain?

Then you must visit Madrigal de las Altas Torres, a small walled village in Avila which is steeped in history and famous among other things for being the birthplace of Isabel the Catholic who along with her husband Ferdinand II is credited with laying the foundations of modern Spain, completing the "reconquista" of Al-Andalus and for sponsoring Christopher Columbus.

Madrigal de las Altas Torres has plenty to offer the inquisitive tourist so if you´re in Spain why not pop up the A6 and experience for yourself what Madrigal has to offer. You won´t be disappointed.
