Segovia is one of the top two or three cities that we have visited thus far in Spain. We traveled there on Monday, August 20, 2012, by taking a metro from Pavones to the Chamartín train station, and taking a train from there to Segovia. We arrived around 10:00 am, and took Bus 8 to the amazing Aqueduct of Segovia:
After taking pictures of the Aqueduct, we stopped at a little restaurant that served thick hot chocolate and churros, a popular Spanish treat:
We are still wondering how the stones in the aqueduct remain together with not one bit of mortar:
The Catedral de Segovia:
After visiting Segovia, we traveled by bus to the city of La Granja, where we enjoyed a visit to the
Gardens and fountains at La Granja:
One last view of the magnificent Acueducto de Segovia before we headed back to Madrid:
It's no wonder that Segovia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited cities in Spain. For more pictures, click here.
