Dating back over 2,000 years to its time as the Celtic settlement of Segobriga, from which its name is derived, Segovia is one of Spain's most emblematic cities.
The symbol of the city is without a doubt its Roman aqueduct, a stretch of the complex system of aqueducts and underground canals built in the 1st century AD by the Romans to bring water to the city from the mountains 15 kilometers away. At the opposite extreme of the Old Quarter you'll find Segovia's incredible Alcázar, a fairytale-like castle complete with slate witches' hats, turrets, sumptuously decorated rooms, a keep and a moat, many believe the castle served as inspiration for Walt Disney's Cinderella castle.
Nestled between the stone arches of the aqueduct and the turrets of the Alcázar is the compact Old Quarter, a delightful labyrinth of medieval streets widing through historic buildings, monasteries and churches that date as far back as the 13th century. Here you'll also find all sorts of atmospheric dining establishments serving delicious up Segovian favorites like cochinillo (roast suckling pig), embutidos (cured meats) and Ribera del Duero wines.
All of this and much more awaits you in Segovia. For more information about this truly unique city, take a look at our Segovia Guide
