As I come from one of the offshore international financial centres, the components of the audio tour and the exhibits that covered the history of the emergence and progressive development of money was particularly interesting. My wife and I were visiting Segovia on a day...More

Some people can get a bit weary of so many churches and cathedrals etc. in Spain - so this is a nice change. Outside the city but not very far and in a lovely quiet setting. Definitely get an English guide if you need one....More

This museum is the result of a full renovation of the old mint. Lots of information with some original and some recreated artefacts. Admission is free on Wednesday. There is a audio visual information area on site about the Aqueduct which was quite interesting.

The Real Casa de la Moneda is a short walk downhill outside the old town. You can see it from the viewpoint by the Alcazar and it looks a long way off but it only takes about a ten minute walk to. When we visited...More

This excellent little museum is free on Wednesdays. It’s a former Royal Mint dating back to the 16th century, and has recently had a lot of money spent on its restoration – a great little irony, methinks. Its layout has been carefully considered, and we...More

Good displays and exhibits tracing the making of coins in the recently refurbished mint. Plenty of information in English so the audio guide isn't essential. I particularly liked the working replicas and outside water wheels. There is also a secluded garden and an exhibition about...More

This is the mint, powered by water flow . And the restoration has been done very nice. We stayed till closing. Really could have been an Other hour. If you like original mechanical functionality of devices Then this is for you.

A beautifully restored gem of industrial history. Great exhibition with good videos and audio guide. Wish I had allowed more time - you need 1 1/2 at least. Aqueduct interpretation centre is included and is excellent.
