MORNING (10.30 AM – 1 PM)

Segovia is very close to Madrid so if you go from there, one of the most recommended options is to take an AVE (high speed) train from the Atocha station. First stop in Segovia: the spectacular Aqueduct. Take a picture at the monument. Did you know that the rocks are joined without any type of material? Next we suggest a walk towards the Jewish Quarter along Calle Cervantes, and continuing until reaching Puerta de la Luna, which leads onto the Paseo del Salón avenue. From here there is a stunning panoramic view of the city's green belt. If you go up the Puerta del Sol you will arrive at the old Main Synagogue. Once you have enjoyed the Jewish Quarter, it is time to go inside the Cathedral, which is already spectacular from the outside.

When you order, don't miss the typical dishes such as roast suckling pig. After a relaxing meal, you can go to the Alcázar. It will look like a castle from a fairy tale: As well as visiting its interior, it is definitely worthwhile to climb to the top of the tower (152 stairs), the view is incredible. Tradition has it that the view of the city from the highest part of the Alcázar makes it look like a ship, with the Alcázar at the prow, the Cathedral as the main mast, and the Aqueduct as the anchor cast into the sea.
