Beautifully FREEZING cold
Our yummy homemade sandwiches with hard-boiled eggs, tuna, and a homemade honey dijon mustard sauce. MMM
The Roman Aqueduct of Segovia is one of the main attractions in Segovia and is believed to have been built around the end of the 1st century and the beginning of the 2nd. It is one of the most well preserved and still functioning aqueducts in Europe.
At about 96 feet high, it's a pretty impressive structure that left my friend and I in awe. Literally. My friend almost hyperventilated right when we got off the bus.

Beautiful Castilla y Leon-ean countryside.
Translation? Don't piss on the grass! Okay, it actually means "Don't step on the grass" but.. come on, my version is better, no?
Supposedly Sleeping Beauty's castle is based off of this one here in Segovia
The Segovian Alcazar. I know what you're thinking... what's the difference between an alcazar and a castle? Well, it's basically the same thing but the word 'alcazar' derives from an Arabic word al-qasr meaning fort, castle, or palace. Curiosity DEFINITELY killed the cat on this one -___-
Cool tiled map in the informational center of the alcazar.
This I dedicate to my dear friend, Jackie K. Enjoy.
The beautiful sky.

(Yes, I know... Christmas is over but I couldn't resist sneaking in one last remnant of the holidays)
I think Segovia has stolen my heart because it's my favorite Spanish city so far. I can't really pinpoint why because the Alhambra is definitely breath-taking and magnificent and even Toledo is very quaint and charming, but something about Segovia's quiet majesty really made an impressionable mark on me. Until next time, mis amigos. Besos!
