Segovia!

Tomorrow Schiller students are taking a day trip to Segovia, as part of our cultural activities program.

Roman Aqueducts

Segovia is an ancient city, first recorded as a Celtic settlement. Following that it was a Roman city, and one of its best attractions are the aqueducts pictured above. Truly an impressive construction, it was built at the end of the first century or beginning of the second, and is made only of stone, without mortar.

Other attractions in Segovia include the cathedral, castle, and of course a lunch of cochinillo, or suckling pig.

This World Heritage City, just thirty minutes north of Madrid by train, is one of the top recommended day trips and is a great way to explore Spain. Stay tuned, as we will do a blog post with pictures from the students´ trip!
