Great place to visit and the food is excellent and inexpensive. A place to visit if you go to Madrid as a side trip.

“Impressive structure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Begun in the 1st century AD under Emperor Domitian and probably completed under Trajan in the early 2nd century, the aqueduct brought water to Segovia from the Frío River 16 km away. It stretches from the southeast end of the city across the Plaza del Azoguejo to the southeastern walls of the old city. Its scale and stones are best admired from the Plaza, but then be sure to climb the stairs to the city walls for a view over the top and along its length into the distance. The Aqueduct has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

a really breathtaking site. you should also walk around the walls under and around the aqueduct. the whole city is pretty, avoid eating on the main square (Jose especially)

“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

It has been carefully restored and forms and integral part of the old town and at the same time the entrance to this lower part of the town, quite special to stand at the foot of a nearly 2000 year old building in such good state
