You will see bigger and better such squares as you travel round, but it is pleasant enough to stop for a drink or snack here with an adequate choice of cafes and restaurants.

This plaza is a short walk from the church. It’s really rather small compared to the other cities in Spain that I visited. There isn’t a lot to see or do here.

Been to lots of plazas before and this gives off a tired poor feeling. Did stop for a drink at one of two bars open to people watch but not that impressed. So good I didn't even take one photo.

Rest your feet, sit awhile at a local cafe or on a bench. Watch the people come and go. A lovely place to relax or meet up with friends.

Not one of your larger plazas, but pretty. Several vendors are set up for you to shop and sample local food.

We happened to be in Avila the date of the Spain and Portugal match. The plaza had some televisions set up for viewing. A fun, family-friendly way to enjoy a beautiful evening.

Can't say the half empty restaurants set for tourists interested me much. Better and less expensive offerings other places. Some of the older buildings are interesting though

Lined with shops and restaurants/cafes, this is a beautiful spot to come visit. They also have a local market on weekends where you can buy farm fresh fruit and vegetables, plants, and homemade goods.

This is a typical square within the city walls. One can find the town hall with its bell tower and clock here. There are many bars, cafes and restaurants along the sides, with many people enjoying drinks and food, sit back, relax and people watch.

This is another great plaza to visit and relax in during your visit to Avila. We enjoyed ourselves on our visit.
