What a charming town! We had two nights here but could easily have stayed longer. It has a relaxed friendly atmosphere, lots of choices for dining, lots to see and do.....
1. Aqueduct, one of the best-preserved elevated Roman aqueducts and the foremost symbol of Segovia. It has 167 arches.
2. The Alcázar of Segovia ("Segovia Fortress"), a medieval alcázar and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It was originally built as a fortress but has served as a royal palace, a state prison, a Royal Artillery College and a military academy since then. It is currently used as a museum and a military archives building. We climbed its 152 stairs to get great views.
3. Palacio Real de La Granja de San Ildefonso, known as La Granja, is an early 18th-century palace. It became the summer residence of the Kings of Spain from the 1720s during the reign of Philip V.
4. The gardens and grounds extend over 1,500 acres (6.1 km2) inspired by the gardens at Versailles.Read more
