Adventure in Segovia, Spain

I was in Madrid that time so I decided to do some adventure sightseeing. My friends from Madrid had to go to work that time, so I am alone. I decided to go to Segovia. I asked one friend who lives in Spain’s capital for over a decade already,where is the train station from Madrid going to Segovia. She told me it is in Atocha station. From my friends apartment in Becerra, I took the bus going to Atocha. I had a hard time because not so much people can English. How I wish I can speak that language but I only understand a little. The lady in the customer service in Atocha’s station told me that I need to go to Chamartin Train station which is he starting point going to Segovia. In short, I finally boarded the AVE train going to this city which only took almost half an hour in going there. You can also ride the Cercanias train but it is quite slower which around  one and a half hour. If you arrived at the train station in Segovia, you still  have to take  Bus no. 8 going to the Old Town.

The famous Roman Aqueduct of Segovia and its Old City are  listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built by the Romans around the late 1st Century AD to supply water to the roman military fort on the hill. The Aqueduct’s highest point is 28 meters in Azoguejo Square.

SAM_3706The  Cathedral of Segovia  was built in the Gothic style. Construction on the Cathedral was started in 1525 and completed in 1768.

There are many sights to see in Segovia. Among the few ones I experience are the Alcazar, Segovia’s Cthedral,  the Roman Aqueduct, Azoguejo Square, Iglesia de San Esteban, the Walls of Segovia and other historical sights in this city.
