Celebrating Palm Sunday in front of the Cathedral
Impressive, of an splendid stand, the monumental size of the Roman aqueduct has become the icon of this millennial city. Segovia is its walls, its great plaza, its cathedral, its Romanesque churches, its convents, its narrow streets, and its splendid mansions. It has been and is the meeting point of cultures down through the millennia: Roman, Arabic, Jewish and Christian.
|The city today vibrates with the same power and drive that symbolizes the majestic Alcazar of the Middle Ages. In its renaissance, the traveler will find in this lovely city, after having taken a stroll , a magnificent view towards the most placid fields of Castile and Leon. Segovia is to be visited in order to enjoy this time honored city, discovering its mudejar architecture, convents from Isabel's period, and many other fortresses and constructions characteristic of the city, a proof of the arts and of the past ages.||
Complex of the Monastery of the Parral in Winter.
Without forgetting about its fires, where inn keepers maintain ancient recipes of stews and roasts, and together with the wines of the close by Ribera del Duero, are ready to calm and offer refuge to the visitor.
