  • The aqueduct of Segovia is beautiful from afar when entering Segovia from Valladolid, up close and from above. It is very well preserved and hallucinatory to see it so high and so long. It is essential to view from above, from the side with a view that you can not forget. If you go to the main square you climb calmly and avoid the stairs. Lower them very well. Unbeatable

  • Visit Segovia and its aqueduct that was built by the Romans to take the water to the city of Segovia. It was built in the early 2nd century A.D., roughly at the end of the reign of Emperor Trajan or early Hadrian'. Impressive architectural work that endures in the time very well preserved. You have to see it And once there let you feel the passage of history about you

  • This place opened my eyes and heart to the past like ripping away a veil so I could see clearly. It set me on my life’s path (avocation) of being in love with the classical world. So astonishing-and still works-and still beautiful. Loved Spain and my four years there. Loved Segovia and a lifetime wouldn’t be enough-go! Go now!
  • One of the most beautiful landmarks in all of Spain the Segovia Aqueduct is a UNESCO World Heritage site and rightfully so. This amazing roman aqueduct was completed sometime in 98 AD and carried water from the River Acebeda to the city. You can walk along the aqueduct, and NO, not in it but along it on the ground.
  • Astonishing. The whole town is wildly picturesque, even without the Aqueduct looming over it. It's made of marble and has no mortar (!) and has been around since about the year 100. It's still in use, even more astonishing.
  • An amazing feat of engineering and construction first built in early 100 AD! It has been well preserved as has the town of Segovia. Pleasant strolling through charming, narrow stone streets filled with shops, bakeries, restaurants and of course, old churches! A nice day trip from Madrid.
  • It's impressive to see how a construction having so many centuries of history is still so magnificent. The aqueduct is a heritage of Romans and is a masterpiece worth to be seen from different perspectives: in full sunlight to admire its details and at the sunset to get amazed by the shadows and the colors passing through its pillars. Don't miss to get on top of the steps close to the tourism office of Segovia: you'll have a great view from the top!
