    Segovia Cathedral 2

    Cloisters From Inside

    Favorite thing: Inside there are a lot of interesting features. It is a huge Cathedral and has a Hispano-Flemish Gothic cloister by Juan Guas (I think that's what I've photographed here!), amazing choir stalls and of course the main facade.

    Segovia Cathedral

    Cathedral

    Favorite thing: It was constructed in the Gothic Style but was built on the remains of the old Cathedral which was destroyed by fire during the revolt of the Comuneros.
    The building of this Cathedral started in 1525 under the direction of Juan Gil de Hontanon.

    Mountains

    by micas_pt Written Apr 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I arrived by car in Segovia after visiting Valladolid. Approaching Segovia from “this side” there is a breathless landscape “behind” the city: some huge, imposing mountains covered with snow. Unfortunately as the day was very grey my photos don’t do it justice. But believe me, it is something worth seeing.

    Favorite thing: Segovia is the capital of the Province of Segovia, one of the 9 provinces that “build” the autonomous community of Castilla y León in central Spain. This beautiful city was classified by Unesco as World Heritage site in 1985. Situated on top of a hill, Segovia has 2 rivers running nearby: River Eresma and River Clamores.

    City from the distance

    by micas_pt Written Apr 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Seen from a distance, even in such a greyish day, Segovia looks fantastic – the Cathedral rising high above other buildings, the castle on top of a hill overlooking the surroundings and defending the town from invaders. The brownish colour of the stones that make these buildings gives a characteristic feel to the lovely town.

    Some things never change!

    deadly-glazed pastries? be careful now...

    Fondest memory: I saw these russet-toned glazed pottery pieces all over town. We have an almost identical pitcher from eons ago when Dad was stationed at Torrejon and we lived in Madrid for a few years. Sighhhhh, the things are still probably glazed with deadly poisonous lead, don't you think...just like the good old days, hehehehe. But they're kind of nice to look at. JUST to look at, good grief, not to buy! No more junque...;-P

    SEGOVIA CITY

    by Chus69 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This city is only about 70 Km from Madrid and it's very well known for two main things: Aqueduct (from the Romans Period) and Baby Roasted Pig (translation from 'oOOo', or little pig, Gods' food for people).
    If you want to have a pleasant day in Segovia, you can taste this food in a lot of places there. And to begin with, it's strongly recommended to ask for 'Judiones de la Granja', that's Big Beans from Segovia.

    Fountain and Church

    Favorite thing: All around Segovia you will find many fountains and different monuments.

    This fountain is close to the Church of San Andres, a Romanesque style church dating back to the 12th century.

    The bluest skies on earth!

    by morgane1692 Written Oct 23, 2003
    who would not want a balcony view like this?

    Fondest memory: The vistas here from your perch at the Alcazar entrance are spectacular! No rain on these Spanish plains for you, only crystal azure skies and the freshest, most breathable air, and sun, sun, sun!
