Muralla De Segovia, Segovia Reviews - Write a Review
*Eng: Nowadays, Segovia preserves around 3.5 km of its city-wall, reaching a thickness of 2.5 m. and an average height of 9.5 m. Also, several of the old gates still stand, such as the Gate of San Andrés, the Gate of Santiago or the Gate of San Cebrián. The Segovian site is located in an easily defensible environment, between the rivers Clamores and Eresma, advantage used by its inhabitants since the Neolithic period. Therefore, the layout of the present wall can be traced back to Roman times and concretely to the second century BC, when the situation of the Empire became unstable, due to the strong crises that were making there appearance. After conquering the city to the Muslims, in 1088, the king Alfonso VI insisted on reinforcing its defenses by raising a fence whose layout resembles what we preserve in the present time. In the sixteenth century, the wall begun to lose its defensive and symbolic functions and the Segovians reused it to adjoin their homes (and save themselves the building of a wall). In the nineteenth century it was seen as a holdback to the city, so it was largely demolished. It wasn’t until later, in the twentieth century, that its historical and patrimonial value were acknowledged, and the city wall declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO, along with the Aqueduct. *Esp: En la actualidad, Segovia conserva unos 3,5 km de su muralla, que alcanza un espesor de 2,5 m. y una altura media de 9,5 m. Así mismo, se mantienen varias de las antiguas puertas como la Puerta de San Andrés, la Puerta de Santiago o Puerta de San Cebrián. El enclave segoviano se sitúa en un entorno fácilmente defendible, entre los ríos Clamores y Eresma, hecho aprovechado por sus pobladores ya desde el Neolítico. Así, el trazado de la actual muralla se puede retrotraer a época romana y concretamente al siglo II .C., cuando la situación del Imperio empezaba a volverse inestable, debido a las fuertes crisis que estaban asomando. Tras conquistar la ciudad a los musulmanes, en 1088, Alfonso VI se empeña en reforzar sus defensas levantando una cerca cuyo trazado se asemeja a lo conservado en época actual. A partir del siglo XVI, la muralla va perdiendo su función defensiva y simbólica y los segovianos la reutilizan para adosar sus casas (y ahorrarse construir una pared). En el siglo XIX se empieza a ver como un estorbo para la ciudad, por lo que se derriba en gran parte. Fue sólo más tarde, en el siglo XX, cuando se reconoce su valor histórico y patrimonial, siendo declarada por la Unesco como Patrimonio de la Humanidad, junto con el Acueducto.
