Travel Blogs from Segovia
I have been running out of puff in a big way. However let's see what ground we can cover relatively quickly. Segovia was only a reasonably short drive from Salamanca (about 200ks) so on our way we did a detour to a castle La Granga de san Ildefonso. Amazing palace with almost every room has a domed ceiling with an ancient mural on …
This morning, we left Salamanca and traveled for two hours to Segovia. It was wonderful to drive through sunflower fields, especially since I did not know that was an important export from Spain!
Once we arrived in Segovia, we headed to the Alcazar, a castle/fortress with influence from the Moors and Catholics alike. It is really interesting to see the blend between the two cultures. While this is a common mixtures in ...

We made it back to the apartment about midnight, Amelie proclaimed that it was the best day of her life (she thanked me before going to bed), the boys were begging to go back to CO!

During three months of the year, it seems, like many Alpine animals, to exist in a lethargic sleep. Segovia lives within itself among its mountains, ...

The city has restaurants famous for serving roast suckling pig and that is on our menu tonight.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAcueducto Hotel Segovia
this was a nice room and great bathroom. The shower was big enough for 2 :). the only downfall was that the WiFi was not in our rooms and we had to go down to the lobby each time to call home or send an email. Staff very helpful and coffee was wonderful.
