I found the people of Segovia to be very friendly and helpful. If I had to choose between a visit to Avila or Segovia, I definitely would pick Segovia and leave Avila for another visit.

New Advent Segovia

Under Roman rule in 80 B.C., the settlement to be known as Segovia was on the front lines of Muslim and Christian conflict until Christian forces captured the city in 1085 A.D.

The cathedral was completed in 1577. It is open to the public on weekdays and weekends. (click here for interior photos of the Cathedral)

Photo above the alcazar (castle) of Segovia.

The Romans had fortifications on this site, but it wasn't until Alfonsa VIII that the shape of the present alcazar started to form. In 1862 a three day fire destroyed the roofs and framing. The building was restored in 1896.

The Segovia aqueduct was built during the time of the emperor Trajan in the1st century. The aqueduct is a marvel of Roman engineering and the one in Segovia is one of the best preserved in all of Europe.


Photo above - this narrow street will take you to the alcazar.
