Segovia

I went to Segovia, Spain with my study abroad group. Segovia is famous for its aqueduct, cathedral, and castle. One of the first structures that I noticed upon arrival is this huge, stone aqueduct that was built through the middle of the city. The aqueduct is almost two thousand years old! The Segovia Cathedral looks just like the cathedral located here in Salamanca. The cathedral has an architectural Gothic style and was built in the heart of the city. Cathedrals here in Europe are enormous.

The Segovia Castle, or Alcazar of Segovia, is one of the most famous castles in Spain. The castle is made of stone and has a small moat surrounding the exterior. It’s famous because many Spanish kings lived there centuries ago. Its exterior is beautiful. I climbed to the top of the tower, which was difficult because it was dark and narrow, to see the view of Segovia.  From the top, I could see the mountain, nicknamed “La Mujer Muerta”, because it takes the shape of a dead woman.

Hasta luego,

A.
