Photographer's Note

The aqueduct of Segovia is the most recognized and famous symbol of the city.

It was built at the end of 1st to early 2nd century BC by the Romans during their occupation of the Iberian peninsula.
It brought water from the Río Frío (about 18 km away) to the city, requiring an elevated section in its last 1 kilometer from the Sierra de Guadarrama to the walls of the old town.
This elevated section, largely dominating the nearby scene, is supported by an engineering marvel of 166 arches and 120 pillars in two levels.
