  • The aqueduct of Segovia is a Roman aqueduct carrying water to the city from spring of Fuenfría, located in the mountains close to 17 kilometers from the city. Its construction dates from the beginning of the 2nd century d. C, at the end of the reign of the Emperor Trajan or principles of the Adriano. The most visible, and therefore famous, is archery which crosses the Azoguejo square in the city. It is a monument in prefect State of conservation. Beautiful, different and unique.

  • You meet with him immediately the eyes and long can't deviate from the obtained impression! Firstly it is huge, especially if we take into account an estimated time of its construction and the fact that this is what's left. Secondly it was running water pipe with cleaning! facilities. Thirdly, on his background produces very beautiful pictures. Our trip was different because we chose February) it was a surprise to themselves! Particularly successful playing snowballs with her daughter, right on the ancient streets of the city! When the trees around us with green canopies, folding under the weight of white blankets. We dressed about as for the cool, slightly frosty days of late autumn, i.e. gloves-sure! Although many small delightful lavchonok, in which you can dress warmly for the quite acceptable 10-12 euros.

  • It's spectacular. The one thing it really really needs is a viewing platform built over the top of one end so you can see it all from above right down the middle of it. We climbed the steps up from the city square and the view of the Aqueduct was great.
  • Perhaps counter-intuitively, this is probably better seen in the nighttime. The lighting in/around the area is very well done. Parking was easy, straightforward, and there are lots of little alleys to explore.
  • This was a dream come true visit for me. I've always been interested in visiting aqueduct up close and personal and this was out of this world. The city of Segovia was very historic. It was a short 50 minute bus ride from Madrid highly recommend this city as a day trip.
  • It's not often that I am lost for words, but this really was amazing. Start your walk at the source end rather than the aqueduct end. That way you experience the effect of the wall, then arches getting bigger all the time.
  • A great place to see history... The aqueducts that were built by Rome. Up close and personal...places for coffee and food. Highly recommended!!
