Segovia has an abundance of architectural treasures of enormous heritage and historical value such as its Romanesque churches, Gothic cathedral and old royal palace. However, without a doubt, Segovia stands out for its spectacular Roman aqueduct, which has more than 160 arches.
Yet, Segovia treasures much more than its patrimonial past and artistic treasures. It is also characterized by its festivals and celebrations, especially those of the saints, which have become famous. These traditional celebrations stand out for their splendour and spectacularity. Their origins are lost in the mists of the centuries but their charm and attractiveness are intact, which translates into a great claim for regional tourism.
Another characteristic of the city is its developed mercantile muscle, which translates into a large number of shops, stores and modern shopping centres where one can find products from the most recognized international brands. Segovia also has a vibrant and active craft market, especially on Real street, the most popular in its old town.
Both the celebrations and the thriving commercial muscle have resulted in an abundant gastronomic offer thanks to the countless tapas bars and restaurants where tourists can enjoy exquisite food and excellent liquors. This, in turn, translates into a very lively and entertaining leisure offer.
