Segovia Aqueduct by Kevrekidis Segovia Aqueduct by Kevrekidis
Segovia, Castilla y León – España
Segovia, Castile and Leon – Spain

The Aqueduct of Segovia is located in the emblematic Plaza del Azoguejo. It is a Roman construction and one of the most significant and best-preserved ancient monuments left on the Iberian Peninsula. The Aqueduct is the foremost symbol of Segovia, as evidenced by its presence on the city's coat of arms. It was build between the second half of the 1st Century AD and the early years of the 2nd Century, during the reign of either Emperor Vespasian or Nerva.
The aqueduct transports waters from Fuente Fría river, situated in the nearby mountains. From the point the aqueduct enters the city until it reaches Plaza de Díaz Sanz, it boasts 167 arches.
