Our new city bus ride to Segovia takes just an hour, passing through changing countryside as we head to this famous city in the mountains.
After our morning coffee break we walk round the corner to stand by the great Roman Aqueduct built 2,000 years ago. From here we start our carefully planned walking tour past Romanesque churches, medieval buildings until we come to the statue of Segovia’s hero, Juan Bravo. So many stirring stories to be told about him.
We then enter the little known Jewish Quarter and, if open, a visit to the perfectly preserved (although no longer used) synagogue. We have a short break in the quiet gardens behind the synagogue where there is an excellent view of its outside architecture. This half of the walk ends in the Plaza Mayor and, after our tour of the Cathedral and the church where Isabel the Catholic was proclaimed Queen of Castile , we go for lunch at a very special friend’s restaurant where we have a table booked in his cave!
Next on our itinerary is the Alcazar for tales of gallant knights, fair maidens and a ghost story . For those willing to climb the tower steps, there is time to go and view this marvelous city from atop the Alcazar. Also we have time for shopping in the classy gift shop.
Back in the Plaza we have refreshment at one of the outside cafes before walking over to the aqueduct, this time to view it from above.
