7 Places to Visit in and Around Segovia

If medieval architecture, Gothic cathedrals, and Romanesque churches are up your alley, you need to visit Segovia. The attractions in Segovia are rooted in its past, making tourism both fascinating and educational. A real jewel in Spain's crown.

Alcázar de Segovia

Alcázar de Segovia

This castle is located in the old town and if you think it looks like a scene from a movie, all turrets and twisting stairways, you're right - it inspired Disney!

Aqueduct of Segovia

Aqueduct of Segovia

This feat of Roman engineering is shrouded in mystery - it's so old no one has yet managed to date it! Local legend has it that Satan himself built it, in a single night, no less.

Segovia Cathedral

Segovia Cathedral

A trip to Spain is often punctuated by cathedrals and churches, but save your energy for this one - it's one of the very best. Tours are in Spanish and take in the artwork.

Monasterio del Parral

Monasterio del Parral

The monastery opens from 11:00AM to 5:00PM, unless you book a group tour through the Segovia tourism office. It offers great views across the walled city, so take a camera.

Casa de los Picos

Casa de los Picos

This unusual building, decorated with hundreds of granite peaks, is worth a walk-by, as part of a wander around the capital, or along a shady walk towards the aqueduct.

La Muralla (Ramparts)

Play medieval knight here, with a walk around the famed and historic walls of Segovia. Enjoy pretty views and learn about the city's history – entry with audio guide is 1.50€.

Plazuela de San Martín

This small, charming plaza offers a statue of Juan Bravo and the 14th-century Torreón de Lozoya. There's also plenty of nearby shops and restaurants to help soak up the atmosphere.

Planning Your Segovia Visit

Day Trips to Segovia

Segovia is a popular day trip destination from Madrid (it's around an hour's drive), as there's plenty to see and do here and much of it can be squeezed into a day. Do a bit of planning to work out how long you need - history or architecture buffs may want a little longer to explore.

Eat your way through Segovia

This city offers delicious food at cheaper prices than nearby Madrid. Try the local suckling pig or bean stew for a real taste of the region.

What people are saying about Segovia

Segovia and toledo in one day, busy but interesting enough

As i wrote, the day was quite busy but still it was very interesting. The guide, Patrisha, explained a lot about history and symbols which are barely noticed without knowledge. Though she seemed to be very tired

Segovia and Toledo Tour with Alcazar & Optional Cathedral Reviewed by a GetYourGuide customer, 01/22/2019

It was a great outing. I wish I had spent more time in Toledo.

I wish I could have visited the castle in Toledo or the cathedral but I would not want this to be at the cost of reducing time spent in Segovia as it is a gem.

Excellent tour of both towns in one day. I highly recommend it.

Excellent value tour of both towns with palace entrance ticket in Segovia and cathedral entry ticket in Toledo. The bus was nice and English tour guide Rocia was good. Plenty to eat in both places so don’t worry about food. Wish we had one hour more in Segovia and less in Toledo.

The best tour of its kind I have ever done.

The Amigo Tour to Toledo and Segovia was a big day-eleven hours, but it was well paced and the time went quickly as there was so much on offer. The bus was good, the driving excellent especially for the final leg home from Segovia to Madrid. Our tour guide Jose was such a lovely fellow and thoughtful and knowledgeable. I’m so glad we did this tour of the two towns as both are so interesting and beautiful, the walled town of Toledo is spectacular and Segovia has the aqueduct which has to be one of my top tourist highlights, ever.

The tour was great; our guide Minerva did a great job!

Note: the bus doesn't have a sign so for your first pickup look for your guide (they'll be working their cell phone with a list in hand, probably looking for you) :)
