Come and discover the secrets of the Alcazar and the Cathedral of Segovia in a historical tour of the city.

Description

We want to provide you with a great insight into Segovia´s history, stories about its palaces, the medieval and Romanesque beauty of its streets and the chance to discover from within the symbols of the city: the Alcazar of Segovia and the Cathedral. Join us on the Best of Segovia Tour with tickets.

A tour of Segovia´s history begins at the feet of the emblematic Segovian Roman aqueduct, the best preserved monument dating from Roman times. Our Spanish speaking guide will accompany you to the sightseeing point of Mirador de la Canaleja, a must - see with stunning views of the city and landscape. At this point, be prepared to be amazed by the famous Casa de los Picos (House of the Peaks). Can you guess how many granite blocks make up its façade? 

Our tour continues through some of the most enchanting places in Segovia, a stroll through the Plaza de Medina del Campo, the Romanesque Church of St. Martin and the main places of Jewish Segovia where its old main Synagogue stands out (Corpus Christi Church) and a clear mix of Christian and Jewish religion can be contemplated, a fusion of both doctrines. 

When we reach Plaza Mayor, we will gaze at the majestic Cathedral of Segovia, a chance to take in its elegance and history. We will talk about its exterior, guarded by gargoyles and prophetic angels with trumpets and we will explore the inside of the temple; decorated with stained-glass windows and ornamentation of past centuries. 

The Romanesque style of the Canonjías neighbourhood will guide us through gardens within this impressive architectural complex until we reach the main royal castle-palace of Castile and Leon. The Alcazar presides over the city as an extraordinary Royal Palace

Our tickets for the Alcazar of Segovia will allow you to further immerse yourself in the city´s history and discover the origin of the building, the Real Colegio de Artillería (Royal College of Artillery), the rooms in the Palace and much more

Discover the enchanted city with our Best of Segovia Tour with tickets, an opportunity to wander through the historical centre and discover everything there is to know about the Alcazar and the Cathedral of Segovia. Special tickets will allow you to access in your own time the Museum of Segovia and the Antonio Machado House-Museum.
