Our itinerary starts at the Plaza de Azolejo, at the foot of the famous Segovia Aqueduct. It was built by the Romans during the 2nd century AD.
As we enter the old town of Segovia, we cannot miss the Mirador de Canaleja, with beautiful views of a part of the city, with the Casa de los Picos or with La Alhóndiga.

In this square we will find the mythical Torreón de Lozoya and the church of San Martín.

One of the most emblematic and important places in Spain.
