Like many cities in Spain, Segovia can be called an open-air museum without exaggeration. There are so many attractions concentrated on a small territory here that it seems as if History itself has settled among the stone walls of old houses. The grandiose Roman aqueduct, which has survived millennia, along with the Alcazar and the cathedral – that’s why tourists from all over the world come here.
Segovia still has churches and monasteries built during the Early Middle Ages. It seems that time has no power at all over their powerful walls. Several small museums contain collections of ancient artifacts, carefully preserved for future generations. The silent city squares may still remember the unhurried tread of the royal processions and the clang of the weapons of the noble Cortes.
