Segovia Aqueduct, Segovia

Admire original Roman architecture at Segovia Aqueduct, which is widely considered one of the most significant and best-preserved ancient monuments left in Spain. Marvel at the 166 stone arches of age-old engineering that transported water into the city for over 18 centuries. You can walk the entire 17 km (11 mi) of the aqueduct or just visit the portion that towers over the center of the city. Stop and have a coffee in Azoguejo Square, where the full splendor of this monument is visible.

  • I read that experts not put of agreement as to the date of construction of the aqueduct... What more gives... it is amazing they could even think of making a work as well and that follow on foot as many centuries later

  • A real work of art of children years ago is something amazing and that you should not miss on your trip to Segovia.

  • Symbol of the city, the aqueduct is really big and well maintained given the age. Point of departure and arrival of many tourists. worth a shot.

  • 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!!
