I eagerly climbed steps leading up to the fortifications that would give me a bird’s eye view of the aqueduct. While from the ground, it appeared high, it took me a mere 2 minutes to reach the mirador (viewpoint). It was well worth it and I convinced J.J. to also go up with me.
One can actually follow the aqueduct on foot from its highest point to the lowest. Every corner we turned, there was more to marvel. J.J. shared his knowledge of the Roman Empire and its fantastic engineering. Walking the grounds where Romans and others who followed in their footsteps made us reflect on the brevity of our life and what a blessing it is to be able to have our experience here in Segovia.

Israel and Ana were trying to take their selfie with the aqueduct as their backdrop.
