Aquaduct - Segovia





So I struggled to wake up but did make it to the 9am train to Segovia. As previously mentioned this place is open on a Monday. Everything in Madrid closes. The train only 9 Euro for the return trip. Took about 2 hours to get there. There was a screen with the temperature showing and when we arrived it was only 6 degrees. I didn't realise it would be so cold and only had my 3/4 trousers on and a thin jumper. Walked to warm up and eventually found my way to the city centre and information centre. Got a map (first thing I find when arriving in a new town/city). Another bus tour - this one went outside the city gates, too far for me to walk, so was worth it. There is a great cathedral and fortress that can be seen from most areas outside the city. There is also an aquaduct that is quite prominent. Will upload photos of these, as able. Had lunch in the plaza (another beautiful sunny day), more postcards written and went inside the cathedral for a look. Great old churches. Also went to the fortress - looks like the place where sleeping beauty grew up. Didn't pay to go inside as it seemed to be impressive from the outside. Wandered around Segovia until the evening train back to Madrid. Slept most of the way (catching up from the night before). On getting back to the Hostel I met up with the boys again so went out for dinner. Slept very well that night.
