Segovia, Part 1

During our trip to Spain we drove from Madrid to Ribera del Duero, stopping roughly halfway in the historic city of Segovia to see its famous sites - the Roman Aqueduct, Cathedral and Alcázar. The aqueduct dates to 98-112 CE and provided water to the city as recently as the 19th Century. It is quite stunning to see in person.

After walking along the aqueduct, we entered the old city to continue on to the cathedral. The massive Gothic cathedral was built starting in 1525 and completed in 1768.

My next post will continue with photos from the Alcázar, the fortress castle and palace in use from Roman times to Spanish kings.
