Stunning Segovia

A name I had heard of as a place en route to the Costa’s ..sounded exotic ..so off we went ..seemingly Walt Disney thought so too as he made his Sleeping Beauty castle a carbon copy of Segovia’s Alcazar ..A castle which perches on a rocky out crop ..magic views as we came down the hill off the high plains it hits one with a whiff of legend ….
Next was the Aquaduct ….a stunning monument to Roman engineering ..894 m long it was raised in the 1st century AD

Here we had our usual whistle stop tour as parking was just two hours and even though the sun was scorchio I made it round the very hilly city without to many moans …

      1. The Battle of Salamanca saw the Anglo-Portuguese army under the Duke of Wellington defeat Marshal Auguste Marmont’s French forces among the hills around Arapiles, south of Salamanca, Spain on 22 July 1812 during the Peninsular War. A Spanish division was also present but took no part in the battle.
