The Ancient City of Segovia
Segovia, located near Madrid, is an antique city, very rich in past and traditions and full of interesting historic spots and amazing constructions. Segovia is one of the most interesting spots of the region to those who enjoy learning about culture, traditions, and history while visiting a city. This city is not only one of the most famous and interesting in Spain, but also in the entire Europe.

The origins of Segovia date from the Celtics époque when it was a Celtic settlement. After its Celtic period, Segovia was inhabited by Romans, who conquered it and ruled the city for an important period of time. This way, it is not difficult to imagine the great amount of interesting events and scenes this town has seen and lived and the stories its buildings can tell.

One of the most interesting and characteristic elements of Segovia is its aqueduct. The aqueduct of Segovia was constructed more than 2000 years ago by the Romans, and to the date it still maintains its structure in perfect conditions and is been able to deliver potable water to the city for centuries despite of the great amount of natural obstacles it has lived, such as earthquakes or hurricanes.

The aqueduct of Segovia is one of the most impressing pieces of engineering of not only Spain but the entire world as well. This aqueduct is not only amazing due to the way in which it has been able to function properly through thousands of years, but also to the fact that it has been constructed in such a way that its stone blocks are united by perfect equilibrium rather than concrete or any other similar element.

Segovia is also world wide famous due to the fact that it is one of the cities which has more Roman Churches in Europe. Besides these churches, this city also has a great amount of other constructions dating from several different époques and showing a variety of architectonic styles in such a way that any tourist who enjoys architecture should not miss visiting this spot while being in Spain.
