Basilica de San Vicente

San Vicente, Ávila's most important church after the cathedral, stands just outside the Puerta de San Vicente, on the spot where San Vicente and his sisters Sabina and Cristeta are believed to have been martyred in 300. Begun in the early 12th century (the apses, transepts and part of the nave were apparently built by 1109), it was not completed until the 14th.
