What have the Romans ever done for us...?

This is part of the Roman aqueduct in Segovia, completed in about 112AD to move water from the mountains 20km away into the town. You have to marvel at the engineering.

Having studied Roman architecture (the pioneers of building) as part of architecture course, I have been fascinated and longing to visit these marvels...Seeing these shots, I'm spellbound and cannot wait to behold them in person! Thanks for sharing, your photos have portrayed  the splendour so well +1

Great shots. That's the largest aqueduct I've ever seen.
