Introduction


On this tour you will visit Avila, the best preserved walled city in the world. Its walls, which form an impressive monument, are rectangular in shape, with a perimeter of about two and a half kilometres, some two metres high and three broad. The walls are reinforced by stout turrets at intervals of roughly twenty-five metres, ninety of them altogether, and the most important of them all is the one called "Cimorro" or cathedral apse. It has nine gates, each of them open between strong turrets, among which the most outstandingly monumental are the ones called the gates of San Vicente and the Alcázar.

Segovia has been awarded a place on the UNESCO World Heritage list and the city is no doubt one of the most beautiful in Spain. It lies on a rock with the rivers Eresma and Clamores at its foot. It was inhabited in the remote past and Rome turned it into a military base, of which the famous aqueduct has survived the passage of times as a unique example of the mastery of engineering in the Empire. It begins 14 km from the city above the Puente Alta reservoir. The roofless channel, used to descend the slope of the sierra as far as the first purification plant in the outskirts of the town. From there, a double row of granite arches, which reaches its greatest height at the Azoguejo, took the water in a pipe to the Alcázar, the fortress. The aqueduct is the symbol of Segovia and the reference point of its urban layout.
