Short visit to Segovia but a lucky one! Special meeting was taking place there and we had food and wine for free! :)
Despite the rain it was good enough to make us reserve another weekend to go back there again ;)
Enrique del Pliego, these ones are for you my friend :)

On our way to reach Segovia and avoid highways we crossed the montaines and found a place where we can ski.

And you can reach it by train! It called Navacerrada.

A place to stay, rest, sleep and enjoy the snow

An YES! Above 1700m high we found already some snow!:)

Some time latter we finally arrived to Segovia where its rainning

"Acueducto". Is this the name in spannish. Romans work… remarkable!

"cochinillo" is how this typical plate, with a small pig is called. As far as we know it's the most known Segovian plate!

And "Casa Candido" is known as "the best" restaurant to eat "cochinillo"

The old square

And despite the rain, the show most go on!

A new musical instrument! Try to guess what is it…

The square by night

The cathedral and a bit of the square

inside the cathedral

and yes, look above you, this amazing job must be appreciated!

And its time to go home again… lets enjoy the cathedral view again before we go

And another angle…

Oh… sorry, I almost forgot to show you this delcious fruits/chocolats… These are real fruits with cognac and Chocolat outside… Expensive? For sure! But they are so, but so good!… forget "Mon-cheri"! :)
