This Aqueduct was built by the Romans during the 1st century AD and is one of the best-preserved structures of its type. It supplied water from the Frío River to the city into the late 20th century and is the foremost symbol of Segovia, as evidenced by its presence on the city's coat of arms. The pillars and arches of the two-story arcades are made of solid blocks of stone fit closely together with little or no mortar, and the lower arches alternate in height according to the structure’s adaptation to the contours of the land. It reaches a height of 28.5m. Its a marvel of lasting construction, a truly spectacular structure.

If you are in the area, the aqueduct is an impressive sight and in wonderful condition. Lighting is not particularly important. We visited during a thunderstorm and the structure appeared quite awesome.

14 km aquaduct. Channel the mountain water into the city with an inclined plane of 1-3 cm. The rocks are stacked up 1 by 1, with the help of gravity remains in its respective position. It is the longest serving aquaduct. Amazing
