A landmark and the symbol of Segovia, the Aqueduct is a two storied aqueduct bridge which was named a World Heritage in the year 1985. It was built sometime during the latter half of the 1st century A.D. under the rule of the Roman Empire and was constructed to supply water from the Rio Frio River to the city. The pillars and arches of the two-storied tall Aqueduct are made of solid blocks of stone fit closely together with mortar. Trivia- the lower arches of the Aqueduct alternate in height according to the structure’s adaptation to the contours of the land. Extensive reconstruction has had taken place during the 15th and 16th centuries. The Aqueduct of Segovia is one of the most intact Roman aqueducts in Europe. A must see while touring Segovia.

Aqueduct Of Segovia, Segovia Reviews - Write a Review
The aqueduct alone is worth a trip to Segovia. It was marvelous to stand next to this structure, which has been in place for 20 centuries, and think about the engineers and workers who created it so long ago. Also, it is a beautiful structure that punctuates the landscape and city around it. We enjoyed viewing it from different levels and angles as we walked up the stairs to the upper part of the city.
A must visit place in Segovia, brilliant architectural work of ancient roman era. Very warm, friendly, joyful ambiance, plenty of space to roam around, plenty of food outlets, cafe and some casual shopping stores. Overall, a nice, beautiful tourist destination, offers a complete package - both historical and culinary tourism
Perhaps counter-intuitively, this is probably better seen in the nighttime. The lighting in/around the area is very well done. Parking was easy, straightforward, and there are lots of little alleys to explore.
It's spectacular. The one thing it really really needs is a viewing platform built over the top of one end so you can see it all from above right down the middle of it. We climbed the steps up from the city square and the view of the Aqueduct was great.
An ancient hydrology engineering marvel. It is a sight to see that something built so long ago is still standing up to this day. I am awed to be here seeing this structure. They don't make this type of structure anymore. The structure seems out of place surrounded by tourist shops. A highlight of the trip for me.
