I first set foot in Segovia in 1989. Much has changed since then. Back then, you could drive your car under the aqueduct. Today, the entire boulevard from the aqueduct to the other end of town is pedestrian and commercial. I lived on the first "boca calle," San Francisco, up from the aqueduct, and was able to see the structure from my window daily.
Having been fortunate enough to return on a few additional occasions, I offer the following recommendations to you. Segovia is unique in its history, architecture and positioning. However, what will draw you in is its small-town flavor amidst it all. It is absolutely worth your detour whenever you’re near... or far.
