Cathedral of Avila
The Cathedral of Avila is one of the best examples of a European Fortress Cathedral. Its apse is part of the city wall.
Built on the site of a former Roman temple, the oldest part is dated between 1160 and 1180.
The original layout of the Cathedral of Avila was amended by Fruchel, a French-born architect, who created the original Gothic header, which is part of the walled city.
Over the centuries, the route of the cathedral continued to be modified. Thus, the first towers and naves date back to the thirteenth century, and the second towers, the cloister, and vaults are from the fifteenth century. The works were finished in 1475, with the construction of the mechanical clock.
