Segovia’s Roman aqueduct may be one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen, but the city’s royal castle is not to be sniffed at either.
Nobody is sure exactly how old it is, but Alfoso VIII (1155-1214) and his wife Eleanor lived there for sure, so that takes us back around 800 years. We also know that the Romans built a fortification there, so this thing sits, at least partly, on foundations from two millennia ago.
The ceilings inside the castle were amazing. I’m saving those for a third Segovia post.
