Historical Monuments in Segovia
Aqueduct of Segovia
(260)
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. I'd recommend checking it out first thing in the morning when you start your trip and around sunset when the rocks seem to glow in the golden sunlight. It goes without saying that you should visit the aqueduct if you're in Segovia, but I'd also say that anyone who visits Madrid should take the 30min. train (it's only 10 euros, after all) and see this amazing monument.

Castles in Segovia
Alcázar of Segovia
(166)
The Alcázar (from the Arabic al-qasr, meaning castle) is, after the Aqueduct, the premier sight in Segovia and has been built and re-built from everyone from the Romans to the Arabs to the Catholics, giving us a good overview of the history of Segovia. The castle itself is a whimsical, fairytale-like structure with point towers, a staggeringly deep moat, rocky bridges, and arched windows which inspire the imagination so much that even Walt Disney himself used the castle as a basis for some of his works. When you enter, you have the option to visit the interior of the Alcazar as well as go to the top of the Juan II Tower, something I'd really recommend (unless you're claustrophobic...the winding stairwell is a bit tight). The interior of the Alcazar as throne rooms, royal bedrooms, and a hall of Kings, all of which are decorated with ostentatious roofs, red velvet, and mind-boggling tapestries. The Alcazar's location on a rocky outcropping above the rolling meadows also offers you the chance to take in some of the most beautiful views of the old city of Segovia with the mountains in the background, so make sure to bring your camera. All in all, you can't visit Segovia without stopping at the Alcazar.
Cathedrals in Segovia
Segovia Cathedral
(97)
For me, the Cathedral of Segovia is the best sight in the city, even more so than the Aqueduct or Alcazar, which are both amazing in their own right. The Cathedral, though, has something special. It's a combination of the sheer size, the never-ending geometric detail of the domed ceilings, the dozens of ornate chapels and altars lining the walls, the soft light passing through the stained glass windows, and the holy quiet. It's overwhelming and upon entering you understand the biblical meaning of the word "awesome." The place fills up quickly around 11 or noon with (often noisy) group tours, so make sure to try and get there first thing in the morning. Photography of all kinds is prohibited, but no one's really watching so you can snap away without your flash. If not, just take the visit slow: check out the small details in the chapels, enjoy the towering spaces, and sit a while in the choir area. I'm not a cathedral guy, but trust me...this cathedral is incredible.

Pedraza

I didn't get to explore this medieval town until recently, and I was pleasantly surprised by its marvelous plaza and the narrow streets which are so perfect for pictures. It leaves you wanting more. It's one of those places which really leaves a mark both in your mind and in your heart.
Gardens in San Ildefonso
The Gardens of la Granja
(44)
There is little more to say than what has already been said. It's a must-see. As always, it is not the same as seeing it on direct television. I would like to highly a restaurant which we were told had only had been open three weeks. It's called "La Golondrina" and is very close to the bottom of the hill, next to the hotel Spa "Elizabeth Farnese". We ate there a few times and although the menu is not very extensive, the staff is very courteous and also a la carte dishes are delicious and very well presented and plentiful.

Palaces in San Ildefonso
Royal Palace of La Granja of San Ildefonso
(42)
The Royal Place of La Granja is situated on the northern slope of the Guadarrama mountains, about 90 kilometers away from Madrid. Its name comes from an old farm monastery that was run by monks from Segovia. Felipe V retired to this place in the year 1724 and during the next twenty years he had the gardens and the palace developed and extended. The palace was used as a summer residence by all his successors until Alfonso the 13th. Recently, the palace has undergone restoration and redevelopment of the collections in the official rooms, so that decoration harks back to the days of Philip V. The frescoed vaults, boxes and furniture from the XVIII and XIX are really interesting to see.

Castle of Pedraza

This fortress was first built in the 13th century, then rebuilt in the 15th. You definitely shouldn't miss the "Night of the Candles", which is the first two Saturdays in of July. They turn off all the lights of the town and just have candles everywhere.

Squares in Segovia
Plaza Mayor de Segovia
(23)
FOr any street that you go through to get to the Plaza, you are surprised by the breadth and the large size of the buildings. You'll be surrounded by the cathedral, the city hall, theater ... If you get the chance, be sure to contemplate it from the temple inside the plaza.
Squares in Pedraza
Main Square of Pedraza
(7)
It is hard to choose a favorite spot in a town with such attention for detail. I will definitely choose the square. It has everything in order to be considered one of the most beautiful squares in the whole of Spain. On the sides of the square bars and restaurants, which look its best in the warmer weather, can be found. Yes, in winter, as I show in the video, it is also a pleasure to go into one of them and enjoy something good at the heat of the fire.
Churches in Segovia
Church of San Martín
(20)
On the way to the Cathedral, walking from the aqueduct by the bustling main street, we are in the Plaza de Medina del Campo which is a beautiful Romanesque church, the most notable parts being its atrium and XV century tower. It was a surprise to me that this church is absolutely nothing like the buildings around it ...

La Granja Fountains
(12)
The fountains in the gardens of the Palace of La Granja are beautifully designed. They feature mythological scenes represented in a wonderful style, so when they launch their water jets should be spectacular. We will have to go to see them when they work, since they weren't when we visited! Although we probably won't be able to do it with the tranquility of this visit.
