What a wonderful country you live in, buho!
Awesome thread!

I particularly love the pics of the Royal Coin Mill where the green moss
covers wood and stone...

You can also see here the medieval walls.

The aqueduct continued bringing water to the city until the 1960's.

But tourists don't follow the aqueduct. Where is the end?

From two arcs, to just one. And it continues like this for hundreds of metres.

The end of the arcs, so it continues being just a wall.

A castellum aquae, where the water was filtered.

And the end of the roman aqueduct on the ground. It follows for 15 km underground.

My favourite pic is #30/3!
Very interesting to see how the aquaeduct finally turns into a wall
and then continues under ground!

A few metres away from the beginning of the roman aqueduct, there is one of the less know monuments in Segovia, San Antonio el Real convent. It was a royal palace built in 1455 and then converted into a convent when king Enrique IV "The Impotent" died.

Baroque except for the wood mudéjar roof in the apse, one of the several there are in the convent.

Segovia (155) by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

Another room, with a renaissance roof.

Segovia (158) by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

Segovia (159) by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

The cloister also has mudéjar roofs.

Segovia (162) by santiago lopez-pastor, en Flickr

There are three flemish altarpieces, the only in Spain made in terracotta. S

The refectory, where the nuns had lunch. The walls are painted in the 17th century by the own nuns, so it's visible they weren't top painters, but have a beautiful naif touch.

The pulpit.

The cloister was open in the middle ages, but it was closed in the 17th century in the Little Ice Age. After the Medieval Warm period, many medieval cloisters were walled.

Extraordinary artwork and fascinating commentary. And the Roman aqueduct is a wonder of the world!

Georgous roofs, particularly love the colourful Renaissance roof!
Also like the naive painting of the nuns.
A wonderful cloister garden!

Thank you again for this beautiful pics, buho!
