Top Tours & Activities in 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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€.
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.
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.
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.

What People Are Saying About Segovia
Tour was great except we didn't see much of Toledo due to heavy fog however the tour guide Staffi (hope it's the correct spelling) was the best guide I had since I came to Spain. She was very passionate when speaking about the historical areas and was very friendly towards the group. Not to mention she was very helpful and answered all the questions with enthusiasm. I would definitely recommend this trip to Toledo and Segovia even though you couldn't see much in Toledo. You should definitely try to get Staffi as your tour guide, she is remarkable and easily likeable.
Alfonso, our guide and his assist were great guides and very thorough in English..speaks very clearly and we understood very well what he was saying. Has very good sense of humor. Will come back to amigo tour and request for him in my next tour.
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!
Enjoyed the places we visited and the guide's commentary. Recommend without reservations.
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.
