Plans generally change for the better. Instead of taking our trip to Segovia on Saturday, Kitty, Natalia and I decided to go on Sunday to avoid getting caught in the forecasted rain. After grabbing some breakfast (and coffee!!) at The Little Big Cafe in Moncloa (Madrid metro stop) and an hour spent on the bus, we arrived in Segovia.
The up side: it didn’t rain!
The down side: Not many museums or attractions are actually open on a Sunday afternoon
But we did get to walk around and see what we initially wanted to see. Segovia’s architecture is predominantly pale pink or beige with mixed patterns – a detail I find can be missed in the main streets of Madrid.
The Alcázar (above) was erected upon the remains of a Roman fortress and had to be reconstructed after a fire in the 1860s.
The aqueduct is arguably Segovia’s most significant landmark. It is one of the oldest methods used by the Romans to transport water. Segovia and its aqueduct was declared part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
