It is famous for its well-preserved roman aqueduct, which is 16 km long. Home of some of the kings of Castile, this city preserves one of the most important medieval group of buildings in Spain. 
Due to its elegance, the Cathedral of Segovia is considered to be “the Lady of the Cathedrals”, and the Alcazar is the most spectacular castle in the country. We will see the Aqueduct, the Cathedral and the Alcazar.

It is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has a great artistic beauty and buildings from almost all periods in history (Arabian, Gothic, Mudejar, Renaissance and Baroque style).
