Roman Aqueduct, Segovia

Visitors to Segovia usually take a bus in from the train station. The bus terminates at Azoguejo Square where you would alight and be greeted by this majestic and imposing columns of stones. These Roman Aqueducts, one of the best preserved in the world, stand over 20 meters at its highest point and date back to over hundreds and perhaps thousands of years (historians estimate it was built around AD50). They are also the most enduring symbol of Segovia, and a testament to human ingenuity.

Segovia is a beautiful city, and also easily reached from Madrid. Most opt for a day trip, though there’s enough to easily fill up two. Either way, you shouldn’t skip Segovia if you are in Madrid.
