On the drive from San Sebastian to Madrid, my group stopped into Segovia for a few hours and it was well worth it.
The small town is the site of a Roman aqueduct which dates back to the 1st century AD. It’s pretty impressively intact for its age.
Another major draw is the Alcazar, which is said to have given Walt Disney inspiration behind Cinderella’s castle – how neat is that!
The surrounding scenery of the Alcazar was surprisingly green for the middle of summer and very beautiful.
My other favourite structure here was the Segovia Cathedral created in the 16th century and one of the last examples of Gothic style architecture built in Spain.
For a day stop, Segovia sure packs in a lot to see and the pedestrian only streets make this UNESCO heritage listed town a beautiful site to visit.
