|Segovia's skyline is dominated by its cathedral.|
|Scenes in Segovia|
|Segovia is not really Catalonia but the Bank of Catalonia has signs in Catalan.|
|Energy is expensive in Europe. Having to use your key card to turn on the lights keeps you from leaving them on when you leave.|
The Alcazar. Seriously, some of these places must have been built by people who just thought they looked cool.
|Segovia's glorious Roman aqueduct is a prime reason for it being a World Heritage Site|
|The aqueduct bends as it enters the valley.|
|Left: A long stair case leads to the top of the aqueduct.
Below: Views along the aqueduct from the top.
|Above: Ever wonder where the water went from an aqueduct? Views of the outlet.||Below: the water poured down this flume into a cistern.|
|No wonder the Spanish took so readily to the American West. The scenery in Spain is uncannily similar (which is why all those spaghetti Westerns were filmed in Spain).|
