Segovia, Spain


Do you see it?  That impressive structure between the buildings?  As we walked closer to the aqueduct, its grandeur made itself known to us.  This Roman architectural marvel was buildt nearly 2,000 years ago.  Constructed of mortarless granite, it consists of 118 arches.  Impressive.








Equally impressive is this Gothic cathedral constructed between 1515 and 1558.  Isabel I was proclaimed queen of Castilla where the cathedral stands.  It's impossible to capture the beauty and history one finds within the walls of these gorgeous cathedrals.  Majestic.

Gorgeous!
I can just imagine it was breath taking to stand there and view in person both the aqueducts and the cathedral.
