Segovia: One city - three cultures

As we made our way through the narrow, winding streets, our guide Charo stopped frequently to point out the architectural influences that each culture had on Segovia´s city center. From the Roman walls to the Moorish market to the Jewish neighborhood, students were able to visually travel back in time.
Shown here is the Casa de picos

 Some of the many flowered balconies seen in the old Jewish neighborhood. (Note the elaborate detail on the buildings.)

The "other side" of Segovia, as seen from one of the look-out points in the wall.
