Segovia and El Escorial in one day?

by ray_fb

Is it possible to tour Segovia and El Escorial in one day from Madrid?
Is there a bus going from El Escorial to Segovia?
I'm thinking taking a bus to El Escorial in the morning, tour the
palace from 10am to 1pm, leaving around 2pm for Segovia by bus
or train and then going back to Madrid around 6pm. Would that be
too rush?
Thanks,
Raymond

RE: Segovia and El Escorial in one day?

by vtveen

I think you can do El Escorial in three hours.
But you would have about the same time for a visit to Segovia and that would be (in my opinion) not enough. Because there is alot to see in and around the town, like:
- the aqueduct
- the Roman Church of San Millan
- Casa de los Picos
- Roman church of San Roman
- PLaza mayor
- Cathedral of Segovia
- Alcazar
and outside the town
- La Fuensica Church, Abbey Padres Carmelitas Descalzos and the Vera Cruz church

I would recommend to spens a whole day, perhaps in combination with La Granja with its palace.

happy travels

I think it is possible, but I would suggest a whole day for Segovia. Escorial is on the way to Avila, so you can visit the two in one day. I did not go in, just saw it from the train.

Travel Tips for Segovia

Big trees (La Granja)

by SirRichard

Apart from some nice gardens inside the Royal Palace area, there are also some impressive gardens outside with these huge trees (cedars I think) surrounded by grass and flowers. Beside these gardens there are some pleasant terraces where you can have a drink, a coffee or an horchata.

Best view of the Storks is when they fly

by easyoar

Whilst it is very nice to see the Storks nesting in the trees, the best view of the Storks is when they fly. They tend to be creatures of habit and fly off in the same direction each time, so if you are patient and wait a bit, you can see the fly right overhead, although you have to be pretty quick to get a picture.

In March time they are building their nests, so they frequently fly off to get more twigs, with both male and female seeming to be responsible for building the nest. This of course means that they have to make frequent flights (but without the airmiles) to get the twigs, so you see them airborne frequently. Very graceful birds in flight unless they hit a headwind, in which case they need to flap quite a bit as they have a lot of wind resistance!

Storks

by micas_pt

Like so many other towns and villages across Castilla y Léon, Segovia houses quite a few storks and stork’s nests. If you look up at towers and belfries you will notice the brownish nests of storks. And storks can also be seen flying over the rooftops. I kept looking at them, always trying to do a better photo. Unfortunately, seems that I didn’t succeed in doing so in Segovia – weather didn’t help either.

Drive around the outside of the town

by easyoar

Some of the best views of Segovia are from a distance. Probably the best view of the Alcazar is from directly underneath by the Iglesia de San Marcos (Iglesia means Church).

There is a small field and a river just here, and easy parking (for a change!), so it is simple to stop and look around for a few minutes.

The light had faded earlier than I expected on the day I took this picture, and the sky was very overcast, but when the sky is blue and the sun is lighting the Alcazar up directly, the view is stunning!

Fancy Road name signs

by easyoar

Most of the road signs in Segovia have very normal looking signs. This road (Calle de Isabel la Catolica - no prizes for guessing it means The Street of Isabel the Catholic!), which leads out of the Plaza Mayor has a much more interesting one.

This is a fairly typical thing to do in some Spanish Cities, you can see similar looking things in Madrid.

The Spanish are into pottery and tiles in a big way, and the Moors (from Africa) introduced some very sylish designs which are still copied to this day (although not in this case!)
