7 Places to Visit in and Around Segovia

If medieval architecture, Gothic cathedrals, and Romanesque churches are up your alley, you need to visit Segovia. The attractions in Segovia are rooted in its past, making tourism both fascinating and educational. A real jewel in Spain's crown.

  • Alcázar de Segovia

    1. Alcázar de Segovia

    This castle is located in the old town and if you think it looks like a scene from a movie, all turrets and twisting stairways, you're right - it inspired Disney!

  • Aqueduct of Segovia

    2. Aqueduct of Segovia

    This feat of Roman engineering is shrouded in mystery - it's so old no one has yet managed to date it! Local legend has it that Satan himself built it, in a single night, no less.

  • Segovia Cathedral

    3. Segovia Cathedral

    A trip to Spain is often punctuated by cathedrals and churches, but save your energy for this one - it's one of the very best. Tours are in Spanish and take in the artwork.

  • Monasterio del Parral

    4. Monasterio del Parral

    The monastery opens from 11:00AM to 5:00PM, unless you book a group tour through the Segovia tourism office. It offers great views across the walled city, so take a camera.

  • Casa de los Picos

    5. Casa de los Picos

    This unusual building, decorated with hundreds of granite peaks, is worth a walk-by, as part of a wander around the capital, or along a shady walk towards the aqueduct.

  • 6. La Muralla (Ramparts)

    Play medieval knight here, with a walk around the famed and historic walls of Segovia. Enjoy pretty views and learn about the city's history – entry with audio guide is 1.50€.

  • 7. Plazuela de San Martín

    This small, charming plaza offers a statue of Juan Bravo and the 14th-century Torreón de Lozoya. There's also plenty of nearby shops and restaurants to help soak up the atmosphere.

El viaje a Toledo y Segovia muy bonitos y muy cultural. Hemos sido muy afortunados y tiempo nos acompano, soledo y una temperature estupenda. El guia y el conductor muy educados y muy profesionales, nos han echo el dia muy facil y hemos difrutado mucho.
