Aqueduct Of Segovia - Review
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
Loved it. Took a tour with Castellum and it was magnificent. Lola, the tour guide, was extremely patient and kind (we had issues arriving) and she was most helpful. Wonderful tour with an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic approach. Would recommend Lola to anyone seeking a Segovia tour. One note to mention, due to time constraints we popped in to Juan Bravos restaurant on main square. Staff was rude, forgetful, and plain poor service. After 30 min not receiving original drink order and only 1/2 of appetizer order we left. And ironically, they wanted to charge us for drinks that were never served. In conclusion though, Segovia is charming and worthwhile trip. Specially with a great guide like Lola!!
Do you know, Segovia's aqueduct is considered one of the Roman Empire’s most impressive works of engineering. It was built at the end of the 1st century and was in use until the middle of the 19th. It is comprised of 166 stone arches on granite ashlars, set with neither cement nor mortar. They remain standing to this day thanks to an ingenious technique based on balancing forces.
It was absolutely breathtaking... It is literally like you are walking onto the set of a movie!! There was music playing and the beautiful buildings behind the Aqueduct were just too perfect. The Aqueduct itself also has a lot of history to it as it was built by the Romans!
As a visitor, your first true view of the city and what a sight. These Roman ruins can be seen but cannot be walked over. The place surrounding it is full of tourists place to visit Segovia and of restaurants that are definitely worth a visit. The place is also full of birds flying around, at least during summer. This is just part of the charm of the place.
What an incredible sight, a beautiful punch of Roman history and architecture. Furthermore, I completely recommend sitting in one of the nearby cerveserias to enjoy wonderful and very cheap Spanish beverages. I'm sure, you would love it, as much as I did!
