Seeing the Sights

May 20, 2016

56,660 people. That’s how many folks live in Segovia. Interestingly enough, Chapel Hill, NC has 57,233 people, just so you’ll have an understanding of the amount of people in the city. Since it’s near the base of a mountain range and surrounded by countryside, there is a lot of nature to see. For instance, you could be hiking and come across a herd of sheep but surprisingly enough, there is always something cultural going on around here as well. Such as flamenco music, for free! Here are some photos of a random Friday in Segovia so you can get some flavor for what goes on here.

¡Disfruta! Enjoy!

Climbing up these stairs every day will keep you in pretty good shape. Or you’ll die trying. Hopefully the former. Photo: James McConnell.
