Sightseeing in Segovia, Segovia, Spain (B)

Last week, I talked about my 9 things to see and do in Madrid and today, I wanted to share a bit more from our travels in Spain with our day trip to Segovia. There is an abundance of small journeys that you can do from Madrid’s doorstep but I would highly recommend a day trip to this small Unesco World Heritage city. Trust me you won’t be disappointed!

Getting there is beyond easy. Just grab some tickets (we got ours the day before), jump on the high speed AVE train and you’ll be there in 30 minutes.

We got dropped off right beneath the first major attraction – the 2000 year old Roman Aqueducts.

The aqueduct is 818 meters long and features more than 170 bows. The entire system was built by hand, not using any mortar whatsoever. We were in awe of this incredible feat – those darn Romans!!! We decided to eat at one of the delicious restaurants right in the square, within view of this magnificent structure. Segovia is known for its roast suckling pig if you’d like to give it a try!  ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
