Photographer's Note

Here is a closer view of the main portal of Avila Cathedral in Spain. There is another gateway with equally impressive carvings to the side of the cathedral that is no longer used.

The Cathedral of Αvila is a Catholic church in Αvila in the south of Old Castile, Spain. It is in the Romanesque and Gothic architectural traditions.

It was planned as a cathedral-fortress, its apse being one of the turrets of the city walls. It is surrounded by a number of houses or palaces, the most important being: the Palace of the Evening, the Palace of the Infant King, and the Palace of Valderrαbanos, which were responsible for the defence of the Puerta de los Leales (The Gate of the Loyal Ones) also known as La Puerta del Peso de la Harina (The Flour Road Gate).

Unfortunately I did not have enough time to visit the inside of the cathedral.
