Neighbourhoods of Segovia
Explore Segovia’s historic neighbourhoods:
- Centro: Segovia’s city centre is a curious mix of historic and modern buildings. Nestled beneath the towering Roman Aqueduct’s arches, you’ll find the city’s major shopping and dining areas. Pretty plazas and squares, like Plaza de la Tierra and Plaza Echegaray, foreground many charming cafes.
- Plaza Mayor - S.Agustín: The northern neighbourhoods contain some of the city’s most treasured architectural wonders, not least because they house the city’s showstopper attraction, the 12th-century Alcázar Castle. The cobblestone streets are rich in history, with an old Jewish Quarter being particularly charming. This is a truly magical place to stay.
- San Marcos: North of the Eresma River, you’ll find a mecca of historic holy sites including Iglesia de San Marcos, Santuario de Nuestra Señora de la Fuencisla and Convento de San Juan de la Cruz.
What to see and do in Segovia
Segovia is a veritable treasure trove of ancient wonders, museums and architectural delights. One of the most prominent sights in town is the Acueducto, an Ancient Roman achievement of some 20,000 granite blocks. You can get a great view by climbing the stairs behind the tourist office. When it comes to museums, Centro Didáctico de la Judería gives a historic perspective of the old Jewish Quarter, Museo Gastronómico offers a breakdown of regional food and wine, and Alcázar — the Disney-influencing castle — offers spectacular displays and views from its fairy tale-like towers. There are plenty of important religious sites as well, including an awe-inspiring Gothic Cathedral, pretty churches (particularly Iglesia de Vera Cruz) and a number of important convents. The city's picturesque plazas — Plaza de San Martín and Plaza Mayor — also contain a number of ancient monuments and towers.

The city is the birthplace of the famed ponche segoviano, a rich lemon sponge cake coated in marzipan and sugar. You'll find it in many of the city's patisseries along Plaza Mayor.
