Monday was time to head to Segovia and despite a minor hiccup of going to the wrong train station we managed to depart in one piece Segovia may only be about an hour away from Madrid but it feels like stepping into a different world. Small cobbled streets have a celtic feel to them and the Alcázar looks so magical that Walt Disney based Belle's castle upon it, in Beauty and the Beast. After an exhausting three days in Madrid it was absolute heaven to enter our cosy, adorable little hostel, complete with lots of sofas, books and blankets. We spent three days exploring this beautiful city which is hardly bigger than a town. The aqueduct which cuts through the centre was built by the Romans in the 1st or 2nd century and is still standing, without the help of mortar. Amanda and I both fell totally in love with this place, and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for an alternative to a big city break in Spain.
