"Segovia la Encantadora!" Top 5 Page for this destination Segovia by Jefie

Segovia Travel Guide: 366 reviews and 898 photos

I went on five different daytrips during my stay in Madrid, and Segovia turned out to be my favorite destination by far! First of all, it might have something to do with my wonderful travelmate Cecile (CesVT), with whom I got to spend my last weekend in Spain. Early on a Saturday morning, we met up in the Barrio de Las Letras, just a few hours after all the bars had closed. Walking through the deserted streets that still bore witness to the previous night's revelries was sort of an eerie feeling, and it set the tone for the day because Segovia is nothing short of magical!

.
Segovia is a beautiful historic city, which welcomes its visitors with a charming, laidback atmosphere. Every street looks inviting, and every terrace seems worthy of stopping by for yet another drink. So if you feel like taking a break from the hectic pace of Madrid, Segovia definitely is the place to go - the only problem is, you might not ever want to leave!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The history and architecture, the quiet pace of life
  • Cons:Having to leave at the end of the day
  • In a nutshell:The perfect place to spend my last day in Spain!

    You did a great job for a daytrip. I got to Segovia on the first sunny day in a few weeks, and everyone came out and was in this amazingly great mood:) Loved Segovia!

    Loved this page! The Aqueduct's always amaze me too, so old, and so high! The Cathedral looks fantastic as does the views on the bus journey. Enjoyed your photo's too!
