How to Spend 1 Day in Segovia

How to Spend 1 Day in Segovia

Segovia is bursting with major artifacts, from a Roman aqueduct and medieval alcazar to a Gothic cathedral. Conveniently, the city is also located within easy day-trip distance of Madrid. Whether you’re planning an outing from the Spanish capital or are staying in town for the night, here’s how to make the most of a 1-day excursion.

Morning: Take to the Skies

Have just one day to explore pretty Segovia? Start on an adventurous note—and enjoy panoramic views overlooking the whole city—with an early morning hot-air-balloon tour. Whether you set off from Segovia or nearby Madrid, you can hop aboard your basket and soar above the city in time to see the sunrise. Spot highlights such as the alcazar and cathedral before returning to Earth. Upon landing, toast your trip the Spanish way: that is, with a flute of cava, plus traditional bites such as manchego cheese, cured ham, chorizo, and other brunch nibbles. 

Afternoon: City Walking Tour

Following your aerial overview, see a new side of the city when you set off on an immersive walking tour. Landmark-packed Segovia is rich in history and photogenic corners, so it’s worth taking the time to explore up close. Depending on your interests, you can wander in the city’s Jewish quarter, discover itsmurallas (heritage rampart walls), admire its 1st-century Roman aqueduct, and learn all about Segovia’s millennia of history.

Evening: Sightseeing and Dining

Wind down your day of sightseeing with a late-afternoon visit to Segovia’s marquee attractions. The alcazar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that stands atop a rocky promontory, is renowned for its extraordinary architecture and for housing a museum, while Segovia Cathedral is a masterpiece of the Spanish Gothic. Following your visit, enjoy an indulgent and relaxing conclusion to the day—Segovia is known for itscochinillo asado (suckling pig), which is the makings of a hearty feast. Alternatively, sample tapas and sip Spanish-style gin and tonics as the sun goes down.
