7 Places to Visit in and Around Segovia

If medieval architecture, Gothic cathedrals, and Romanesque churches are up your alley, you need to visit Segovia. The attractions in Segovia are rooted in its past, making tourism both fascinating and educational. A real jewel in Spain's crown.

Alcázar de Segovia

This castle is located in the old town and if you think it looks like a scene from a movie, all turrets and twisting stairways, you're right - it inspired Disney!

Aqueduct of Segovia

This feat of Roman engineering is shrouded in mystery - it's so old no one has yet managed to date it! Local legend has it that Satan himself built it, in a single night, no less.

Segovia Cathedral

A trip to Spain is often punctuated by cathedrals and churches, but save your energy for this one - it's one of the very best. Tours are in Spanish and take in the artwork.

Monasterio del Parral

The monastery opens from 11:00AM to 5:00PM, unless you book a group tour through the Segovia tourism office. It offers great views across the walled city, so take a camera.

Casa de los Picos

This unusual building, decorated with hundreds of granite peaks, is worth a walk-by, as part of a wander around the capital, or along a shady walk towards the aqueduct.

La Muralla (Ramparts)

Play medieval knight here, with a walk around the famed and historic walls of Segovia. Enjoy pretty views and learn about the city's history – entry with audio guide is 1.50€.

Plazuela de San Martín

This small, charming plaza offers a statue of Juan Bravo and the 14th-century Torreón de Lozoya. There's also plenty of nearby shops and restaurants to help soak up the atmosphere.

Planning Your Segovia Visit

Day Trips to Segovia

Segovia is a popular day trip destination from Madrid (it's around an hour's drive), as there's plenty to see and do here and much of it can be squeezed into a day. Do a bit of planning to work out how long you need - history or architecture buffs may want a little longer to explore.

Eat your way through Segovia

This city offers delicious food at cheaper prices than nearby Madrid. Try the local suckling pig or bean stew for a real taste of the region.

Excellent tour once we got the right bus!

We got the wrong instructions from the Neptune kiosk as to where to get the bus, but we got a taxi at the company's expense (Thanks!). Our walking tour guide was wonderful. She was a history teacher who knew her stuff. Beautiful and enlightening day!

The bus was very comfortable, the guide was knowledgeable, and we felt as though we had seen the high points of Avila and Segovia by the time the tour ended. Would recommend to other US tourists traveling in this área of Spain.

Great Tour - highly recommend this tour!

Our tour guide, Khan, and bus driver were very professional and made the trip fun and enjoyable. The bus was very nice, comfortable. Tours in Toledo and Segovia were very informative and Khan was more than willing to answer questions. Great tour, especially for those with limited time in Madrid. Highly recommend!
