For one of the possible program’s day trips, the group visit Segovia, is a small city an hour north of Madrid.
It is a city that truly embodies both traditional and modern Spain. The three biggest monumental features, the Roman Aqueduct (circa 112 AD), the Gothic-style Roman Catholic Cathedral and the Alcázar give it an old Spain feel while the Universities attract students from all around the world help bring new, modern ideas and style to the city.
A Real Orden issued in 1884, named the Roman Aqueduct Monumento Histórico Artístico (Historical-artistic monument). This name was given to several monuments of the city. In 1985 the UNESCO named Segovia as a World Heritage Site.
