Viejo / El Barco de Ávila, Spain
El Barco de Ávila is a gorgeous little town located in the province of Ávila, at just 185km of Madrid, Spain. It's greatest lure is the magnificent scenery that surrounds it, and panoramic views of Sierra de Gredos. A imponent roman bridge (Puente Viejo) unites both margins of the Tormes river, one of the most important rivers 284km (176mi) heading from the Sierra de Gredos and emptying in the Douro river in the Salamanca province.
