What to see:
In this thousand-year-old city, you will find one of the most famous Roman aqueducts in the world, el acueducto de Segovia, as well as the magnificent castle, Alcazar, which really resembles a castle from Disney World. More importantly, while you’re in Segovia you must try their star dish – cochinillo asado – roasted suckling pig which is cooked so tender that it is tradition for the waiters to slice it in front of you with the side of a plate. Although I haven’t succeeded in finding Segovia’s best cochinillo, I highly recommended going to the restaurant Candido which is easy to find as it’s situated in the Aqueduct’s Plaza and its ambiance is very special.
