Segovia. Plaza del Azoguejo

Segovia is a mediaeval city, like Toledo, but with a quite different feel to it, like the essence of Old Castile, noble, powerful, and a little austere. It is a World Heritage site, packed to its city walls and beyond with historic buildings, its main sights being its Roman aqueduct (the world heritage classification specifically says, "Segovia old town and aqueduct"), its cathedral and the Alcázar, the Disney-like appearance of which belies its long history. Segovia has a certain gastronomic importance as well: the cochinillo, slow-roasted suckling pig, is a near obligatory experience, and if eaten at Mesón Cándido, so much the better.
