Join the celebrations of the Holy Week (21-27 March 2016) in Avila. It’s bound to be a memorable experience for you!

Avila, declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage site, is an enchanting walled medieval city some 100 Km north of Madrid and 1h30 by train or bus. Frequent train service makes it the preferred transport. Check out but if you can’t make heads and tails of the site (you won’t be the first to fail; many have before you!), you can just go straight to the Chamartin Train Station, Metro de Madrid Lines 1 and 10 and book yourself on the spot.

For a bus trip, you might opt for Larrea (Autobuses Larrea), at the Estación Sur. To get there, take Metro Line 6 (Circular), getting off at Mendes Alvaro Station.
