Nowadays one of the nine provinces of Castilla and Leon, Segovia is located on the plains of old Castilla, not far from Burgos or Valladolid and only an hour by car from Spain’s Capital Madrid. More than two thousand year old Segovia has lots of historic sites and buildings such as the Alcazar, the Cathedral and the old walls as well as many buildings of Jewish origin within the old Jewish quarter. But, among all the things Segovia is worth visiting for there is one which definitely stands out: Its Roman Aqueduct. Almost one kilometre long and 29 meters high and made up of 25,000 granite blocks put together without any mortar, Segovia’s impressive landmark is the most important civil work left by the Romans in Spain and an amazing example of their engineering knowledge.
