Visit of Segovia

We’ll start the day by meeting you at the lobby of your hotel in the morning. A private minivan will take us from your hotel in Madrid to Avila. During the trip you will learn about Santa Teresa de Jesus, a great mystic woman and we will talk about the history of this fascinating medieval town. Our first stop will be at the hilltop panoramic view point of Los Cuatro Postes (the four posts) to admire the spectacular view outside the walled city of Avila. Its medieval walls, the best preserved in the world, surround the old city, which houses a great part of its monumental treasures, including a large number of Romanesque-style churches, gothic palaces, and a fortified cathedral of the 12th century.

Back in the Minivan and we are now on our way to Segovia, a UNESCO World Heritage site, most famous for its incredible Roman Aqueduct, the best preserved of the world. We will have time for lunch in one of the many restaurants in the city to taste the segovian specialties. We will continue on to visit the “Lady of the Cathedrals” and view the most spectacular castle in Spain, Alcázar, which was built as a fortress but has also been used as a royal palace, state prison, college, and military academy. This will be a lovely day with plenty of sights full of history, art, culture… and gastronomy!
