  • Majestic monument. It is amazing that this is still working. It is the first thing that welcomes you to Segovia when you arrive. Multiple places for great photo ops. I prefer going up the stairs on the right side for an excellent top view of the aqueduct. I also used my phone in panoramic mode to capture the height of the aqueduct.
  • This was one of the highlights of our trip to Spain. The aqueduct is absolutely massive and it's truly a feat of Roman engineering, especially considering it was built nearly 2,000 years ago!. Hard to describe even through pictures how impressive the scale of this is, let alone how well it's been preserved. You don't have to be a history buff to check this one out, highly recommend!
