Segovia is more than its breathtaking aqueduct. For this reason alone it is worth planning a trip there! Sat at the foot of the aqueduct you can get a good idea of its dimensions and its perfectly-preserved condition. One of the wonders of Spanish antiquity still visible on the Camino.
But pleasant surprises do not end here. The Camino invited you to take the Cervantes street when the night felt. In the middle of the beautiful old quarter with the Christmas lights switch-on, we made our way through the crowd after having followed the lighthouse without light that was the tower of the cathedral at the end of the alley.
The main attraction of La plaza Mayor of Segovia among many is its cathedral. Perfectly lit at nights, we could find a gold Vieira nearby the main entrance and realised that we were in the right way. It is worth taking a rest here, before seeking a tavern to try the traditional food as Caldereta or Cochifrito. We did just that, which is a must for every single pilgrim to go deep into great little pleasures of life that Segovia keeps fervently for curious travellers.
