Segovia is a historical province in the region of Castile and Léon. Since it’s only a half hour drive away from Madrid, it’s a must-see on any trip to Spain. What makes this city truly impressive is its vast collection of monuments. Because it abounds in historical treasures, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Madrid City Tours capture the magic of Segovia on our Segovia and La Granja Private Tour. We’ll take you on a comfortable tour of Segovia in a luxury car or minivan, and show you the age-old Roman Aqueduct and the Cathedral; one of the last Gothic ones built in Spain.
The cathedral is an excellent example of Basque-Castilian Gothic architecture. It houses several museums with an interesting collection of paintings and tapestries. There are 18 chapels inside and a marvelous semicircular sanctuary. This spectacular monument was built on the same site where Isabela I was declared Queen of Castile, and it has been called ‘The Lady of the Cathedrals,' by the locals.
After visiting the cathedral, we’ll show you around La Granja, the palace of King Philip V. Explore the mythological sculptures, the old tapestries, and the beautiful fountains as you tour the grounds.
If you don’t have time to explore Spain at leisure, book an Avila and Segovia with tapa tour. We’ll visit two fascinating Castilian cities in one day. On this 9 hour tour, we’ll show you the San Vincente Church and Cathedral, the Romanesque Basilica of San Vincente, and the Mayor Square in Avila. We’ll then continue our journey to Segovia, where we’ll give you the opportunity to visit the Aqueduct, the Cathedral, and the Alcázar. The Alcázar is an ancient castle that now houses several works of art.
If you’re traveling as a group or a family, we recommend our personalized Avila and Segovia Private Tour. We’ll take you around both ancient cities in the comfort of a private vehicle. You’ll get to see some of the most treasured monuments in both Avila and Segovia.
