We first learned about this aqueduct on an episode of Globe Trekker, and decided that we must go see it since we were going to be in Madrid, so close to Segovia. It really is amazing how well preserved the aqueduct remains. We walked along the aqueduct following it as its arches got smaller and smaller to where the arches... More

The viaduct doesn't cease to impress. It dates from the ring of Trajan 1st C and it looks probably as it did then,once the aqueduct reaches the higher level the water is carried underground to the Alcazar

1800 years ago the Romans built a dam in the mountains, a 14 km long canal, and the 720 metre long aqueduct to bring water to the city of Segovia. About 1/4 of the columns were destroyed by the Moors and rebuilt, but most of what you see has been there for all that time, and shoes no sign of... More

This is my favourite place when I visited Spain. Managed to take a lot of pictures of the Aqueduct. Masterpiece!! Fantastic architecture. We climb up the stairs and it worth it. Remember to take pictures from the top of the stairs and you will see the houses down there. The Candido restaurant which is a Michelin recommended restaurant is a... More

The Aqueduct is a towering masterwork of Roman architecture. You can not miss it as it is the prominent image of the city. Our group did not climb to the top, wish we had. At the visitor center in town center is a very helpful and interesting 3-d map of the city and immediately you can see just how large... More

From the train station, it was an easy bus trip to the information center and aqueduct. The aqueduct itself is very impressive in that is is so huge and so well preserved. It's a quick walk up some easy steps to get better views of the structure as well as a nice view of the city. This is something we... More
