This place is a little larger than life. The views of the Sierra de Gudarrama on the way from Madrid are fine but nothing prepares you for that majestic aqueduct or the magical Alcázar.

Segovia is a hidden gem in Spain. It combines the old world with the new, from Roman aqueducts to medieval castles.

Alas, the rain fell shortly after we arrived in Segovia by train from Madrid's Atocha. We had just walked from the train station to the aqueduct (15 minutes) when the raindrops were released from the heavens. It was a perfect day for a stroll in the rain amidst the backdrop of beautiful Segovia.

Keep reading for two gems that the tour books won't tell you about. Segovia is in a class by itself.

100 km from Madrid is a very nice little town filled with ancient cattle, Roman aqueduct, and medieval streets.

Royal summer palace at La Granja, near Segovia.
It's called the Little Versailles, as it was made to remember the franch style palaces and gardens.It's a must to visit when you come to Segovia.

Standing magnificently on the top of a hill, with the rivers Eresma and Clamores at its foot, the ancient city of Segovia is one my favourites places in Spain. Noble heritage, rich history and an outstanding architecture are its attractions.

If you have the time Segovia and area can occupy your interest for a couple of days. Segovia is a relatively small city, maybe 50,000 people, but there are lots of sights in and around it.
