Summary

Segovia, best known for its two distinct features - the Aqueduct and the Alcazar of Segovia. The Aqueduct dates back to the Roman period, built approximately in the 1st or 2nd century. Its 170 arches are known for its unique slenderness and are still used today to transport water. The Alcazar of Segovia, the favored home of Isabella II, made of limestone and sitting 1000 meters above sea level offers a dramatic brute beauty, peaking out from the surrounding forest
