Segovia City

Segovia is a tremendously picturesque town in Spain's central Castille region and is a delight for the gourmet traveler. It has one of the largest concentrations of Romanesque churches in all of Europe, most dating back to the 11th century. It is home to the famous Alcazar castle, which was the inspiration for Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty Castle and the place where Queen Isabel gave Columbus financial backing for his trip to discover the Americas. Segovia is bordered by two rivers and is a beautiful city full of narrow cobblestone streets. The inhabitants of the town have a penchant for suckling pig and full-bodied Ribera Del Duero wines, which are a treat when enjoyed in the atmospheric, traditional "Asador" restaurants in the old town. There are charming, classically Spanish streets, restaurants, and cafes. Segovia has a rich architectural heritage, full of Gothic, Roman and Romanesque styles.

In Roman and Medieval times Segovia had great importance regarding wool production and was the strategic site of a Roman military base. Today, it is know for agriculture and tourism. In 1985, Segovia's tourism popularity grew when it was declared by UNESCO, "Heritage of Mankind." The city is very close to Madrid, a 54 mile drive that makes it an easy and attractive destination for tourists. Hidden within the mountains this small charming town is a must see for visitors to Spain.
