  • Incredible feat of engineering by the Romans, and well worth the visit to Segovia. Loads of little cafes in the area and very easy to access the Old Town up the steps.

  • Majestic. Absolute stunner. Einstein would be proud of this Roman engineering. Can’t believe this beauty was crafted thousands of years ago. Just love this city. Segovia castle that inspired Disney castles is only a couple footsteps away from here. 90 mins bus ride from Madrid was definitely worth a shot
  • This living proof of Roman ingenuity will take your breath away. Hard to believe it's stood for nearly two millennia. Stones meticulously placed without mortar held by gravity. Incredible. Make plans to grab lunch or a drink at one of the nearby cafes with this monument in full view.
