Description: Most likely built as far back as 50 A.D., the Roman aqueduct of Segovia is astonishingly well preserved. This striking construction’s two tiers of arches outline part of the splendid historic city of Segovia’s scenery. Among other significant monuments are the Alcázar (11th century) and the 16th-century Gothic cathedral. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  The 'Aqueduct of Segovia (or more precisely, the aqueduct bridge) is one of the most significant and best-preserved monuments left by the Romans on the Iberian Peninsula. It is among the most important symbols of Segovia, as is evidenced by its presence on the city's coat of arms. --Wikipedia.
