Segovia, Segovia, Spain

This is the Acueducto (aqueduct) that runs across Segovia. It was built by the Romans to carry
water. On one side of the Acueducto a statue of Saint Mary has been added near the top. The
Acueducto serves as a landmark and meeting place in Segovia. Cars can not drive under it at
this point so in order to enter the city you must either drive up or down hill to a place where you
can come into Segovia without going under the Acueducto. When I was done with class for the
day I would walk from the college on Calle de la Trinidad where our group had rented a
classroom, down the street, across the Plaza Mayor and down another street to the Acueducto.
That is where my host mother would meet me in my host family’s mini-van. On another
occasion, when I went into Segovia in the evening with my host sister, we were dropped off here
and met her friend nearby. The tourism office is located next to the Acueducto. There is also a
small statue nearby showing Romulus and Remus being fed by a wolf.
