This is the incredible and still standing Roman aqueduct in gorgeous Segovia in Spain.

The aqueduct is considered to be the most important Roman engineering work undertaken in Spain.  Up until the 19th it was still carrying water to the city from a river 15 kilometres away – impressive!

You can explore and climb the city walls.  The view is incredible and there are many great photo opportunities.  The local specialty is pigs trotter.  How do you make pork taste even better?  Cook it in fat.

Getting to Segovia is very easy and makes a great day trip from Madrid using the AVE train service.
