“Plaza Mayor and around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Thursdays there is a farmers market with all sorts of fruits and veggies as well as random boths with clothes, books, etc. There are all sorts of stores and restuarants to enjoy surrounding the plaza. Plus the cathedral is there too, and you can walk up the pedestrian road from the aqueduct through the juderia to Plaza Major and the cathedral. Plan to make a long day of it.

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The Plaza Mayor at Segovia is a central place, but isn't like the Madrid Plaza Mayor. Restaurants and bars around.

“Not worth the hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

While the Plaza Mayor was nice to walk around in, it was a very crowded and overwhelming experience. The Christmas market was average at best and we did not spend much time in the area. Rather, we ventured off the beaten path and found more interesting shops and landmarks that we would have missed if we stayed in the Plaza. Take the time and look around the surrounding area. It is worth it.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012 via mobile

Loved this quaint plaza surrounded by hotels and the cathedral . What a lovely place to people watch and have drinks or lunch. Beautiful views from each direction - including the hotels, cathedral and shops . The aqueduct is. It far and the castle is also close. I loved this area and consider it one of my favorite stops.We sated Wednesday evening and Thursday morning there was a big flea market/ farmers market set up in the plaza. It was a nice surprise!

“Nice place to stop and relax”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Nice plaza in central Segovia. Clean and airy. Not the biggest or most impressive square but quaint and comfortable. Places available to sit and relax and watch the world go by. Church and local theatre on square as well as some hotels and shops.
