Impressive feat of engineering to construct something this big and elaborate without cranes and mortar between the blocks. Still in incredible shape after two thousand years. The adjacent old town has plenty to offer in way of sights to make a day trip to Segovia worthwhile. We picked up the audio guide and sightseeing route map from the visitor centre... More

The Roman Aqueduct towers over one end of Segovia. It's an architectural and historical marvel, and a highlight of a trip to Spain. I loved seeing a statue of Romulus and Remus near the base, a gift of the City of Rome.

People can tell you about the aquaduct and you can see pictures of it but until you are there and seeing it for yourself you have no concept of how magnificent and breath taking it actually is. An unbelievable achievement of engineering. A must see.

Worth seeing day and night from both ends, as well as top and bottom - truly inspirational and awe-inspiring, as you would imagine of one of the most important Roman artifacts. Beautiful at night. You can access the viewing platforms at its northern end (level with the top of the aqueduct, where it disappears into the old town) if you... More

The aqueduct is in superb condition which leaves you wondering how on earth they managed to build it with the technology they had available at the time. The surroundings are also very pleasant with plenty open space and nearby churches with stork nests on the roof.

Very lovely ! Had never seen anything quite like this before, and it was an impressive sight. Took the train to Segovia, and then a short bus ride to the aqueduct. Plenty of places to eat and shop are in the nearby plaza.

This is really a monument to Roman engineering. The structure is elegant, functional and astonishing. Can we easily visited on a day trip from Madrid by car or train. Walk around the old city on cobbled streets. Staying overnight to catch the aqueduct under different lighting would be lovely.

We had seen quite a few aqueducts but this one stands out not just for its size but the fact that it is surrounded by a city. Having driven here we parked at an underground lot across the road from the aqueduct. You walk through the coloumns and inside is a plaza with resturants, tourist shops and an extremely helpful...
