Pictures don't do this justice. It is an amazing sight to see. From Madrid, you can take a 30 min train to Segovia then take the 11 bus to the aqueduct area. Buy train tickets in advance as they do fill up even off season.

The aquaduct of Sevogia is indeed a very impressive landmark and you can't miss it once taking the bus into the city from the train station. It's been kept in immaculate condition and you can see how important the aquaduct is to the old city! Climbing up the aquaduct near the information centre also gives a great view of its... More

Wow, I have seen a lot of amazing things however, the Aqueduct blew me away. Just the sheer size and feat of engineering. The fact that it has stood relatively untouched (apart from some repairs in previous years). I was speechless for a while, almost emotional in fact.

This landmark gives us a perfect idea of what the roman architecture managed to achieve nearly 2 thousand years ago. It is in perfect condition and truly beautiful.

We walked the length of the above ground Aqueduct and we were amazed at how well the 'lower' sections up the hill were. They had obviously been protected from the worse of the winds and as a consequence were less eroded. This left a surprising amount of detail including the masons marks and design patterns that you could then imagine... More

The Aqueduct at Segovia is definitely a tourists' delight. A majestic structure that has been well preserved over the years

Dramatically cutting across the center of Segovia, the 2,000 year old aqueduct looks like it could have been completed last month. You can walk right up to it and under it and there are lots of opportunities for photo-taking. Avoid the many touts approaching tourists promoting their restaurants and eat elsewhere in town.

We traveled here on a guided tour. We spent part of our day in Avila, which was well worth the visit. But I would love to return to Segovia and have more time to explore the Aqueduct and the village at a much slower pace! Most certainly an amazing place. We also ate a local restaurant, it was really good.
