Excursion to Segovia

Our first tour of our stay here in Toledo was to the city of Segovia, but before arriving I did not hesitate to carry batteries to sleep on the bus. The arrival to Segovia was impressive from the first step to see the Roman aqueduct in front of the city. Our guide was very specific with every detail and history when explaining the use to bring clean water to the city and its use in houses and Roman baths. Then we went to my favorite part, the castle of Segovia said to be the inspiration of the same Walt Disney for the design of Disney Castle. We saw many halls where parties were held in former times, the fourth of the kings Fernando and Isabel, to their chairs where they received important people or discussed political matters. Then we went to the cathedral in Segovia which has great architecture and many religious works of art. After lunch we had some free time to explore the city and of course we took the opportunity to go to the main square to go shopping for some souvenirs.
