Segovia, Spain ~ May 15, 2004
Hosts - Laura Sanmartín & Justo Valls
Lots of big photos! Be patient while they load... it's worth it.
Segovia: One of the greatest surviving monuments of Roman engineering, this aqueduct stretches from the walls of the old town to the edges of Sierra de Guadarrama. It is about 2950 feet long although the section where the arches are divided in two levels is about 900 feet. It is made of rough-hewn massive granite blocks, joined without mortar or clamps!

On this day, a festival was being held, and many artists were showing their talents. The Merry-go-round was especially fun to watch. In all cultures, the children steal the show!
