Taking advantage of some free time on my VaughanTown prorgram, I joined some fellow Anglos and went to Segovia, just a short ten minute cab ride from our Hotel El Rancho, to see the famed Segovia aqueduct.
The aqueduct is estimated to have been built in the first or second century AD by the Romans. Today, it stands as a source of pride and history for the city of Segovia, a town less than two hours from central Madrid.
Visitors are able to admire the aqueduct from below, and then can walk up to get a birds eye view of the stone structure and the city below. There is no admission charged, and the town of Segovia is the perfect spot to spend a lazy afternoon. Stroll through the winding cobble stoned streets and make to sure visit the city’s palace; once home to Queen Isabella.
