While in Spain, we took a day trip to Segovia. A modern city built among an ancient medieval city
After taking a train from Madrid and a bus, we were dropped off in front of the ancient city. Segovia is famous for the ancient Roman aqueduct that was built thousands of years ago and still works to this day!
I recommend spending a good portion of the day here and planning to have lunch here. While exploring the city, you may stumble upon an enormous cathedral, which is the tallest building in the city.
If you continue to venture off through the city, you will find these gates that lead to something even more impressive…
This is the Alcazar de Segovia, a castle that looks like it came straight out of a children’s fairytale book. Sadly, it was under construction so we couldn’t go inside, but the area surrounding the castle has a beautiful view of Segovia.
