Monday in Segovia 2/20/17

23 Feb

Monday we hopped on the bus and head over to Segovia.  Segovia is famous for many things including the sculpture of the Loba Capitolina, a gift from Rome, the impressive Aqueduct of Segovia and the Alcazar of Segovia. We put in a bunch of steps, but they were worth it as we got to see the Alcazar from a different perspective.  Better yet, while on our journey to the bottom of the Alcazar, we ran into Las Falleras de Valencia while they were on tour taking photos in different parts of Spain.

 

 

“Segovia was so beautiful and the aqueducts were so amazing to see. The view from the top was unbelievable. ”

Segovia was very nice. It was chilly but great views. Climbing the tower was a work out! As well as the steps down and up to go to the grass area with the princesses. It was a nice day out for shopping and I had a nice nap on the bus.”

On Monday we visited the city of Segovia, a centerpiece in the history of Spain. Known for its castle and great views of the surrounding landscape (from the snowy mountains to the dry farmland) we were able to get an image of the past in Spain. Although it has been rebuilt many times and needed many repairs, the Castillo de Alcázar was a very iconic part of my trip to Spain. No wonder it is suspected to be the castle of Snow White.”

On Monday we went to Segovia. It was a beautiful place. The aqueduct is so incredible, especially considering how old it is and the fact that it is held up merely by exceptional architecture. No cement or anything! The view from near the top of the aqueduct was really great; there were beautiful mountains in the background. I also liked the cobblestone streets and the castle we visited.”

Segovia is an extremely beautiful city. The picture above features the Alcazar of Segovia, which was a fortress, royal palace, and a state prison at various times in history. It was so interesting to go through the various rooms and look at the military artifacts that are housed there today. The photo below was taken from the aqueduct that was built by the Romans. The famous aqueduct of Segovia is one of the best-preserved in the world and was amazing to see in person because of its size and length. It was also fun to take pictures from because it provided us with a view of Segovia that left me breathless.”

“One of the main things we did in Segovia was visit the Alcazar and take a tour. We also went on the tower of the Alcazar to take photos. After that a group of us decided to go explore Segovia and stopped at cafes and shops along the way. We ended our day meeting princesses and eating chocolate in a park before heading home.”

Second time visiting Segovia and was still just as amazed at the beauty as I was the first time! Love the views.”

Today we went to Segovia. We went to the Alcazar which is a big castle that Cinderella’s castle was based off of we climbed all the way to the top of the tower which was 150ish steps. My mind is still blown that Ramon got up and down those steps and did not miss a beat.”

-Marissa

Segovia is a very small, cute city. While we were there, we saw the big roman aqueduct. It was very pretty at sunset. We also toured the castle that Walt Disney used as inspiration for Cinderella’s Castle. We also had a lot of time to shop and explore.”
