Segovia Pedrazza and Sepulveda

Segovia is justifiably a popular and charming small Spaniish city well worth visiting. Two smaller but lesser known towns nearby, Pedrazza and Sepulveda, should also be visited if time allows.

We have now been at our Segovia base for 48 hours but it seems much longer. We are so lucky. The hotel is lovely, only a few other guests and we are treated warmly and with great patience.

We are still waking early so we head out each morning for a longish walk in the countryside before breakfast served 9-11am.

Yesterday we drove to two beautiful hilltop villages Pedrazza and Sepulveda. Not crowded, easy driving, perfect weather and amazing examples of Romanesque churches, medieval castles and proudly restored old dwellings.Time also to check out local markets in the plaza mayor and enjoy a cerveza and vino with tapas in the bars.

Today we returned for a proper visit to the  small city of Segovia and we were glad we did. Wonderful small plazas to enjoy coffee and gaze at history. Great visit to contemporary art museum then the Disneyland Castle lovingly preserved with all it’s art treasures. And of course the huge and ornate Cathedral with the Cardinals meeting room.

We enjoyed our paella for lunch and couldn’t believe our luck with the blue sky. Tomorrow to Avila then Salamanca.
