  • It is easy to understand why this beautiful viaduct looked so tempting for a suicide candidate, the view is nice and it's a 23-meter free fall down to the street below, Calle Segovia. The viaduct was built in 1934-42 on the site of an earlier wooden bridge and connects the town with the Royal Castle over a deep ravine. El Viaducto rebuilt 1972-78 to accommodate the heavier traffic while suicides continued until 1998 when the city put up high fences in plexiglass. A lightly macabre site.

  • Segovia viaduct in Madrid (El Viaducto) built of iron in the 1930-ies, replaced the earlier erected in 1874 year and become unfit for use. The purpose of the construction of the viaduct in Segovia is the continuation of the street Bailen, located in the upper part of the city, and the preservation of the unevenness of the Calle Segovia, which takes place in the vicinity of the Royal Palace. 23-meter tall Viaduct is designed to work on it for heavy-duty vehicles in both directions.

  • Its height over the calle Segovia provides you not only a view of the zone, if that was not a point of free fall. This last is avoided with the placement of a few glass partitions. A walk through the advisable in these days of autumn.
