Read about it before you visit and get close and examine the construction. There are easy to climb steps on the Tourist office side to get an elevated view.

After a hustling and bustling Madrid, it is nice to relax a bit and spend a day in a smalrer ancient town of Segovia. It takes about 2 hrs with a low-speed regional train to go to Segovia, but it is worth it. The town is very nice and has many interesting sights inside, bus the Aqueduct is definitely a... More

We took the train from Madrid to Segovia for a day-trip, so see the ancient Roman wonder. It was a worthwhile day, and a break from other sights in Spain. Astonishing to see how something this old is still standing, and in use until the late 1800s. (We moderns could learn something here...) Getting here from Madrid is not completely... More

The is an awesome sight and a testiment to builders who didn't even have to use grout! Kids (ages 7 and 9) enjoyed hearing about the devil's bridge. Legend says the devil tried to create this in one night, but failed, losing the woman's soul he was after. The holes in the stones are supposed to be marks from his... More

Segovia makes for an excellent day trip from Madrid. The Aqueduct is almost 2000 years old and it is quite amazing that the whole thing was built with huge blocks of stone without any mortar and has survived so long (there have been some renovations). This site http://acueducto.turismodesegovia.com/en/construccion/como-se-hizo describes how the aqueduct was built. Read this before you go if... More

The aqueduct is not so much something you visit, more something you can't help but see. It's a very impressive example of Roman engineering situated in the city centre and of course free to view.

It's hard to describe what an awesome site the aqueduct is dominating over the town of Segovia. Used for over 1900 years, it is an unforgettable reminder of how the Romans left their mark in so many places. I've always struggled to get a really good picture of it. The whole town is worth the day trip from Madrid. Just... More

This is an incredible structure standing only on stones. Beautiful place for photography. Must visit when you're in Madrid.
