Make sure you walk the whole length to the top so you can see the very beginning. You can see the "control house" and the channel for the water. Amazing architecture...so old!

We've had the Segovia aqueduct on our "to see" list for some years and now we've finally seen it. It did not disappoint. Much bigger and substantial than I expected from photographs. It would have benefitted from a little more information in the vicinity.

The aqueduct is very impressive! Looks almost new. If you go up the stairs to the viewpoint you get a good view of it's expanse and the surrounding area. Central also to eateries.

Tall, slender, and intact, the Roman Aqueduct of Segovia looks as new as the day it was completed nearly 2,000 years ago. Along with Pont du Gard in southern France, it is one of the most important and best-preserved Roman aqueducts in the world. Captivated by its grandeur and structural integrity, I walked its entire 900 meter length to survey... More

If you are visiting the Madrid area, this is certainly worth the trip. It ended up being one of my wife's favorite parts to see during our vacation. We drove a car because we wanted to also wee the walls of Avila (awesome as well) but you can take a train from Madrid as well (I did that at least... More

What more can you say very old and looks more solid than most modern buildings. Easy to find and lots of places to sit and admire the architecture.

This is a piece of history that is too amazing to describe! It is so huge that you cannot get it all in in one photo. I was so thrilled to be able to see it. You must make an effort to get to this part of town if you are at all near Segovia. The aquaduct is not near... More

Aqueduct is just a short walk away from the bus station. We headed towards it immediately after we arrived by bus from Madrid. Let me tell you, it set the mood for the whole day. Awesome site, amazingly preserved for its age. Climb the stairs to the top if you can, and amazing view of the city will open up,... More
