Segovia & La Granja Private Tour

Segovia

Description

Visit the historical city of Segovia with its roman aqueduct and visit one of the most famous royal palaces, La Granja, the summer palace of King Philip V.

Itinerary

Segovia is located 90 kilometres away from Madrid, just across the Guadarrama mountain range. It is well-known because of its Roman aqueduct, one of the world's most perfect Roman engineering works, and also due to its typical gastronomy: grilled lamb and piglet.

Today's cathedral was built in 1558 after the former was destroyed by a fire during the rebellion of the comuneros against Emperor Charles V. The gothic style was maintained so its plan has three naves, a transept, an apse and an ambulatory. The cathedral's has various museums which are located around the gothic cloister, and in one of them an interesting collection of pieces of tapestry by Rubens can be found.

La Granja is one of Spain's most typical castles. From the XIIIth Century, the Trastamara dinasty took it as its official residence and later on it held Isabel the Catholic's coronation ceremony. Its many halls telling the story of the Spanish kings that have at some time or another reside there.

This palace, located 10 minutes away from Segovia, is a versallesque landmark in Castile. It was built under Philip V and his second wife Isabel de Farnesio reign, during the XVIIIth Century. Apart from the royal chambers that hold an important collection of tapestry, its gardens and fountains with classic mythology sculptures are famous.
