Segovia

Posted: May 7, 2013 in Spain 2013

We met up with Beatriz’ mom Isabel Thursday night back in Bilbao. We enjoyed some wine and pintxos together and said our very sad goodbyes.

Friday morning, we checked out of our hotel and traveled 3-1/2 hours to Segovia. Segovia is an old city with roman, moorish and Christian artifacts. A roman aqueduct from about 100 AD marks the south side of the old town. A beautiful Cathedral from 1500 is in the middle of the city and a boat shaped castle, the Alcazar of Segovia is at the northern tip. The Alcazar is built on top of ruins on top of ruins… The existing structure dates from around 1100.

Our hotel, Casa La Mudejar, is built on top of an ancient Roman spa. They have built an underground spa in top of the roman spa. There are several areas of the roman spa exposed to the interior of the current day spa. We spent Friday night in the spa.
