Segovia, a world heritage city since 1985 by the UNESCO. It is a medieval city full of art and history: Roman Aqueduct, medieval noble houses from the 15th and 16th century, the last gothic Cathedral built in Spain and the Alcazar, our medieval fortress and much more. Enjoy a walking tour through the city together with an official tour guide born in Segovia, who will show you also not famous corners of the city but as important as the most popular and the traditions and gastronomy of the region.

Short introduction of the group and plan the walking tour.
Learn about the origins of Segovia, the 2 rivers which sourround the rockhill and all the details of the 16km Roman Aqueduct which is still complete since 2nd century a.c.
Discover what is the calle Real, one of the most popular streets of Segovia. Learn about the sgraffito technique used in the fachade of the buildings, why the roofs are different in Segovia and many noble houses from the 15th and 16th century, the golden age of Segovia.
This square is one of the most beautiful places of Segovia. A combination of 16th italian influence houses with romanesque churches, an old 15th century palace now part of it turned into an Art Museum and in the middle of the square a sculpture of one of the most important history characters of Segovia.
This is the main square, where you can be amazed by the gothic Cathedral, alias "La dama de las Catedrales", the city hall and all the history behind this irregular main square comparing to other main squares in Spain.
(Here there is the option to visit the inside of the cathedral - around 45 mins)

Enjoy the views from the top of the rockhill and the view point, where you will learn about the Eresma valley and the historical buildings located in the valley. Then discover the medieval castle (here you can choose to visit the Alcazar, which tour is around 45 mins).

Our day tour with Begona was wonderful! She helped us make our reservations for lunch and was very accommodating to our requests. She was very knowledgeable about Segovia and the surrounding area. We learned many interesting facts that made our time spent with her valuable. Thank you!
