Located in the Castile-León region in the northern part of the Spanish interior, its landscape is divided into two completely distinct areas: a more mountainous area in the centre and towards the north; and the southern part which has milder temperatures and is the site of the Tiétar valley.
Its capital is the city of Avila, whose historic centre and the churches outside the city walls have been awarded the World Heritage designation by the UNESCO. In fact, Avila's city walls are the main symbol of the province. Other towns and villages, such as Arenas de San Pedro and El Barco de Avila, are also home to monuments and buildings dating from the Middle Ages.
