South of Castile and Léon, the birthplace of St. Teresa is also renowned for its gigantic medieval city walls, some parts built 1100 m high . They are Europe's best preserved ramparts. The Romanesque Gothic Cathedral that encloses beautiful plateresque sculptures is also very interesting. The museum is home to a statue of St.Teresa.
