234 reviews of Aqueduct of Segovia

Larger than Life

Excellent

Sometimes, one can get "ruins fatigue." You see so many old rocks, barely-recognizable buildings, and crumbled statues that they all blend in to one another. This is not the case of the Aqueduct of Segovia. As you're walking to the city center, you see it peaking above the buildings and you get a tickle in your stomach and think "man, that thing is massive!"

Not only is it massive (around 6 storeys, I'd say), it's also in impeccable shape for being a 2,000 year old Roman monument. I'll leave it to the other recommendations on this page and the Segovia Tourism Bureau to tell you the full history of this archaeological wonder and UNESCO World Heritage Site, but I'll leave it at this: the Aqueduct of Segovia is, along with the Alhambra, one of the most amazing sights in Spain and the best-preserved and largest Roman ruin I've ever seen.

Segovia's aqueduct

Excellent

On a scorching day in August, moments before the rain started falling. The aqueduct and the rain...

The aqueduct of Segovia is the most important piece of Roman engineering in Spain and one of the most symbolic and best conserved monuments that the Romans left on the Iberian peninsula. It has to be the most important symbol for the people of Segovia. It can be found on their coat of arms.

It's missing the inscription, which was located on top of the aqueduct, so it can't be know with compete precision when it was built. The investigators believe it was built somewhere between the second half of the 1st century B.C. and the beginning of the 2nd century B.C., during the time of the Vespasian or Nerva emperors.

The A of aqueduct is a pointed arch

The A of aqueduct stands for the pointed arch that holds the rest of the word together.
When I saw the aqueduct and was told it was build and still stands without the use of cement I couldn't believe it. And it was built two thousand years ago... when there obviously weren't cranes.

I wonder if those who built the aqueduct also discovered the delicious flavor of roasted suckling pig that takes over your senses when you walk in front of the Segovian restaurants. There's a lot of them right next to the aqueduct...

Can't take your eyes off it

Just enter into the Azoguejo Plaza and you won't be able to take your eyes off the massive ancient aqueduct standing right in front of you.
It stands at an incredible height. Once you walk closer it seems impossible that it's still standing after all these years without any cement in its construction. The stones are piled on top of each other, spreading
