The modern Parador Segovia is called the "viewpoint of Segovia" because it has views out over the city that are wonderfully panoramic. This is one of the Parador chain’s ‘modern’ additions. It was built in the style of a chalet and is notable not only for the views of the hotogenic city, but also for its grand spaciousness.

The bedrooms are all more than ample in size, and with polished wood floors and plush rugs they offer a sense of under-stated elegance. The Parador building is situated so that all bedrooms have "postcard" vistas of the medieval city below.
The restaurant is justifiably famous for it presentation of typical Castillian cuisine done up in a fine style. Don’t miss the opportunity to dine there for the late-evening meal – again, the views down and across to the lit-up Cathedral and Alcazar are incredible!
(Alcazar of Segovia)
Segovia – the "city of poets" – is a soaring ship of a city. With its Alcazar and Roman aqueduct, it is one of the most interesting and visually pleasing of cities for the visitor.
Standing and gazing out from the world-renown castle, one is transported as if to some vaguely-recalled fairytale. Everything about Segovia is mesmerizing and photogenic. With each turn, you’ll be confronted with another picture-worthy vista – be sure and wander with camera at the ready!
Legend has it that the city was founded by Hercules – originally named "Briga." The Romans came over 2000 years ago. It is said they adopted the strong, fast horses used by those original descendants of Hercules, and used them in conquering most of Europe. The Visigoths and Moors followed the Roman occupation. They’ve all left their marks and helped create a fascinating city in a stunning setting.
This was at one time the center of wool production for all of Europe. The famed Merino sheep produced a quality of wool sought everywhere, and there were once over 600 wool-carding mills in and around the city.
Typical Castillian food reaches a zenith here – especially in the world famous roasts of suckling pig and lamb. Try to have a meal in the great restaurant, "Candido’s" on the main square under the aqueduct. The walls are covered with pictures of sports and movie stars, kings and queens – all who have dined at this unique restaurant.
