Trip to Segovia city
« on: August 16, 2017, 05:16:43 AM »
Hello I have been today at Segovia, very beautiful, some pictures from there. It would be nice if someone wanted to share some pics from their trips too, or not, who knows... I did not know if to put it here because they are several photos that occupy a certain space and here will be erased. Well, here it goes.

The aqueduct of Segovia. Its construction dates from the beginning of the second century d. C., at the end of the reign of the roman emperor Trajano or principles of Hadrian.

Interesting stuff, the aqueduct photos are very good. My mum long ago took photos of the Roman aqueduct at Pont du Gard in France. Unfortunately this web site does not have the storage capacity for massive quantities of image data so while I am a fan of good photography in interesting places, I can't encourage much of it.

I live in a seismic country, so probably these antiques here would have collapsed long ago. :P

Fortunatelly Spain isn't and is plenty of them. Practically in any corner you can find a medieval castle, Cathedrals, etc. In addition to well preserved Roman remains, such as in Merida, Segovia, etc. And also arabic architectural jewels such as the Alhambra in Granada.

I have not seen them, but I think that there are very beautiful castles in France too, such as the castles of the Loire. And some very beautiful in Germany in the Black Forest, similat to the Walt Disney one.
