Segovia Roman Aqueduct

DPP_1476.1
One of the most well-preserved ancient monument in Spain, the Aqueduct of Segovia is the symbol of the city, and its ambassador to boot. Running over 20 miles, the stretch at the Azoguejo Square is perhaps the most well-known. With over 150 arches gracing the square and soaring over 80 feet above the ground, its sheer scale and audacity is a testament to Roman engineering and human ingenuity.

  1. Aqueducts are some of my favorite architectural structures. I love Italy and ancient Rome, and the colors in this shot are gorgeous.
