General información of Segovia, Spain
* Autonomous community: Castilla y Leon
* Province: Segovia
Segovia is a city of just 52,000 inhabitants, located south of Castilla Leon, at the confluence of the Eresma and Clamores rivers, at the foot of the Sierra de Guadarrama.
It is surrounded by a great wall, and parts of this wall were built from the stones of the Roman tombs and the city is world famous for its imposing Roman aqueduct.
The old city and the aqueduct of Segovia were declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1985.
We like to start our Wine Tours from Segovia to Ribera del Duero at the Aqueduct, built in the early 2nd century, and is the most important Roman civil engineering work in Spain. It has a visible length of 818 meters and invisible 15 km and born in the mountains, where its highest part reaches 28 meters in height. More than 25,000 pieces of granite joined together without any mortar were used in the construction of the aqueduct, the pieces are placed one on top of the other subject to the pure laws of physics. Another surprising detail is that this engineering work conceived more than 2,000 years ago to transport water is still working! On our Wine Tours from Segovia to Ribera del Duero we recommend going up to the aqueduct on one side of the square and if it can be at sunset, where you can see the long shadows with the arches of the aqueduct and beautiful photos come out.
But Segovia is much more than an aqueduct, on our Wine Tours from Segovia to Ribera del Duero we walk towards the Plaza Mayor and find the Casa de los Picos, a 15th century building full of peaks, very famous in Segovia.
In Plaza Mayor we find the enormous Cathedral of Segovia built in the 16th century, which is one of the last cathedrals built in Europe in the Gothic style, and locals call it “the lady of the cathedrals” because of its dimensions and elegance of its forms. It is located between almost 20 Romanesque churches!
Also at Plaza Mayor of Segovia is the Juan Bravo Theater, the Town Hall and the Church of San Miguel that was where the Queen was crowned.
On our Wine Tours from Segovia to Ribera del Duero we recommend having a drink in this square where there are several terraces and also getting lost in the narrow streets of Segovia, as it is full of corners of great beauty and surprising buildings such as the Alcazar.
This Castle-Palace was built in the 12th century in the midst of the transition from the Romanesque to the Gothic style, and for centuries it was one of the residences of the Kings of the Crown of Castile and more recently it has been that of Cinderella, since the Alcazar of Segovia was one of the buildings that Disney was inspired to design its iconic castle.
On our Wine Tours from Segovia to Ribera del Duero, gastronomy is very important and the star dish is undoubtedly the Roasted Suckling Pig from Segovia with one of my favorite wines from Ribera del Duero, Carraovejas!
