Old Town of Ávila with its Extra-Muros Churches, Spain

Old Town of Ávila with its Extra-Muros Churches, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985


The old town of Ávila, founded in the eleventh century, maintains its medieval structure intact with its Gothic cathedral and its fortifications, with 82 semi-circular towers and nine access gates to the city, the most complete and best preserved in Spain.

The declaration includes the walled medieval city and, as of 2007, other elements such as four extra-muros churches included within the area: three convents of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and three Romanesque churches, including the church of Santa María de la Cabeza, in which Kalam intervened for the Government of Castile and León. This temple has a mixture of Arab and Romanesque influences, which makes it unique. Our professionals have worked to restore the church, eliminating aggressive elements and applying treatments and stuccos, with our extensive experience in this type of heritage work.
