WHS Spain: Old Town of Segovia and its Aqueduct Jan 18, 2017
The city of Segovia is dominated by the huge and impressive Roman aqueduct dating from the 1st century AD and which has been designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. I got a drink from a nearby shop and sat taking in the enormity of the aqueduct for a while. It is very well preserved and has only received small modifications which is quite amazing considering how long it has been there.

The aqueduct originates up in the Sierra de Guadarrama mountains near the city and includes 166 arches stretching 14,965 metres into the city of Segovia.

There is no admission charge to see the aqueduct so just sit in one of the cafes nearby and marvel at it at your leisure.

While in Segovia, you will also want to see the Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción and San Frutos on the main square. Be sure to take a look at the stunning Disney-esque Alcazar too.

Address: Plaza del Azoguejo, Segovia

Eye catching! Nov 10, 2011
This is probably the best preserved Roman aqueduct in Spain, and I can’t believe that it was built without the use of any mortar. At its highest point, it stands around 29 metres and it is certainly an eye catching piece in the city. Another testament of its longevity is the fact that it still carries water into the city today; although the original channels have metal piping within them, I’m pretty sure that this is just a formality for today’s health and safety officials! This is a very impressive site in Segovia and certainly worth a few moments of anyone’s time.
