On a trip ... Through the Green Belt of Segovia

The "green belt" of Segovia is one of the great attractions of the World Heritage City, along with its three "stars", Aqueduct, Cathedral and Alcazar, and the old cascon itself.

The start of the walk is located next to the impressive Aqueduct. From here you have to take the promenade of Santo Domingo de Guzmán, at the beginning of which you begin to accompany the trees. Next comes the popular Barrio de San Lorenzo, surrounded by orchards.

There begins the valley of the river Eresma, with monuments as prominent as the Monastery of San Vicente el Real, the Convent of Santa Cruz la Real, the Jerónimo Monastery of El Parral and a large field of orchards. Subsequently, it flows into a bridge, giving way to the Casa de la Moneda, another prodigious example to learn about the industrial use of water.

Finally, at the confluence of the Eresma and Clamores rivers, stands the majestic Alcázar, leaving at its feet the Barrio de San Marcos, and the churches of La Vera Cruz, La Fuencisla and the Convent of the Carmelites.
