The first thing that greets you when you enter the town of Segovia is an amazingly intact Roman Aqueduct that was built in the 1st century AD. And, believe it or not, it was still in use in the 19th century! No wonder those Romans ruled the world!
There are several impressive buildings to visit in Segovia. The grandest is the Cathedral which was built between the 16th and the 18th centuries. Not only is it a beautiful and impressive building, it is filled with gorgeous paintings, sculptures and tapestries. A feast for the eyes - inside and out.
This next picture is of the back side of the Cathedral with a nice view of the tower. Unfortunately, I can not recall where we were when we took this picture. Maybe Mrs. S knows. If you're reading this, Mrs. S, maybe you can refresh my memory. In any case, I love this panoramic view of the Cathedral with Segovia laid out at her feet. Just gorgeous.
OK, next Sentimental Sunday will include pictures from our day trips to El Escorial and Toledo. Hopefully, I'll be back on track and they will be up NEXT Sunday.
