Spain: Segovia Panoramic Tour
Duration: 2 hours
Meeting point: by agreement
In December 1895, UNESCO included Segovia and its Roman aqueduct in its list of World Heritage Cities. The beauty of its location, its environment, its buildings, trees and streets are among the reasons based on which the decision was made.
Segovia is rich in historical monuments, emphasizing its majestic Roman aqueduct from the time of Augustus, the Gothic Cathedral, and the eleventh-century Alcazar, ancient fortified residence of the Kings of Castile. It inspired Walt Disney to design his castle Wonderland.
Segovia is also famous for its cuisine (roast suckling pig and lamb) desserts, and excellent wine.
