Segovia, like a dream
Descripción Datos de contacto

All cities have a real everyday part and another that’s more fanciful – but reality usually predominates. Even so, there are cities, like Segovia, where an imaginary essence would appear to be the foremost characteristic. This Castilian city is famous for its Roman aqueduct of an almost unbelievably large scale and perfection. It is also the site, however, of the graceful Alcazar, a fairy-tale palace and fortress which dominates the view with its spires and towers, and even its urban location forms an incredible juxtaposition of the thick forest around it and the golden plain in the background. Segovia also has a majestic and elaborately ornate Late Gothic cathedral, plus a long list of churches, courtyards and palaces, together with the amazing “House of the Spikes”. Indeed, Segovia as a whole has an air of wonder and unreality, like a dream in stone.
